FT8 and power levels

Mitchel Rought

A question of curiosity about FT8 and the level of power being used, I have a uBITX v6.2 with a usb dongle running approx.5-7 watts into either a  cobweb, 20m hexbeam, or a 20m delta loop, all antennas are run through a tuner and average < 1.1 swr at the digital freq.
I have made contacts and the average report I get back is anywhere from -13 to-26db
I am curious what everyone else is doing and seeing
thanks in advance
