WD9EWK>> ... used my IC-2820H, Elk log periodic, with the 
power cranked down to 5W ...

What? FIVE WATTS?!?! You power hog ... (grin)

Just for the heck of it, I tried with an HT turned down to TWO Watts, 
and a tape measure beam ... and got right through!


I believe a Boy Scout from Victorville got in there at the beginning, 
too ... THEN the pile-up began! What a marvelous achievement -
