Thanks to all who reported on the 500 microwatt beacon Sunday and
Monday. Here are the results:

All of these reports help to put together a meaningful picture.
Although conditions are not ideal for this sort of work on 40 meters at
this time, it is still surprising to see what a minute amount of power it
takes to sustain a path during moderate to good conditions.
We will continue these tests this Winter, when the band
quietens down. I'd like to hear from other stations who might
be interested in setting up attended microwatt beacons on 40 and 80
meters this Winter. It doesn't necessarily take killer
antennas to do this type of work. As a matter of fact, the
best effort so far was made with a dipole on one end and an
inverted vee on the other end!
72 es happy milliwatting,
