Guy's reception of Farda from Grayland on a barefoot SRF-39FP absolutely obliterates the old world record for distance in the Barefoot Class.  BRAVO, Guy!!!!  I've already entered it in the official records.

Guy Atkin's sez:

The highlight of my 2-night DXpedition over the weekend in Grayland, Washington was certainly the logging of Radio Farda, 1575 kHz in the UAE. This was during grayline conditions last night (Nov. 2 UTC date), less than an hour past local sunset and just before Al-Dhabbaya, UAE sunrise. It's a distance of 7,538 mi. / 12,131 km., per the Google Earth "Distance Tool" from the R. Farda antenna array to Grayland Beach State Park!
