was listening to wa3nna/b at 0300-0340z last night,

2 watts 599 (s9+2db at times)
200 mw 559 (altho up to s8 at times, still quite readable)
20 mw 239 (could still copy somewhat but noise level was high last night, s3)

amazing what a 2 watt signal sounds like...perfectly readable. come on, who
needs kilowatts for everyday domestic contacts ... or dx for that matter. after
monitoring the beacon for a while, i worked cuba then germany with rig turned
down to 5 watts. equipment here is icom 751a (with preamp on for beacon test)
and a 600 foot horizontal diamond loop up 35 feet fed with 300 ohm ladder line.
