1000 miles on a 40 cms Patch lead

I was amazed yesterday, had left the WSPR tranny running all day, did a check about midday and saw I was only getting spotted by a few stations all in a straight line out towards Finland and at a 1000 miles, later I noticed that the Patch lead that feeds the WSPR Tranny was not plugged into the ATU, I had changed Trannys the day before. That cannot be too bad transmitting off a 40 cm patch lead a 1000 miles, though I guess the signals was being inducted into the Co-ax screen of the other Antenna leads in the shack.
