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 -
