Hi John,

I mailed you some time back regarding firsts and distance records, I guess
you didn't receive it so here goes again:

I have worked out that my first UL loggings from North America were as
follows.

WWZN Boston MA, USA, 1510, 2-10-08, Sony SRF-59, Barefoot
(50 kw night 2941 miles / 4732 km)
CKEC New Glasgow NS, Canada, 1320, 2-10-08, Sony SRF-59, Barefoot
(25 kw night 2468 miles / 3972 km)

As for Unlimited class first one was

WTNI Biloxi, MS, 1640, 2-10-08, Sony SRF-59, Unlimited class
(1kw night 4214 miles / 6782 km)

These will also be of interest - looks like a new record for 50 kw:
WWVA, Wheeling WV, 1170, 4-4-08, Sony SRF-59 Barefoot
3425 miles / 5512 km.

Same for 10kw:
CBI, Sydney NS, 1140, 3-24-08,Sony SRF-59 Barefoot, 2351 miles / 3783 km

Nice 5 kw catch:
WLAM, lewiston, ME, 1470, 4-3-08, SRF-59 Barefoot, 2831 miles / 4557 km

New 1 kw record? (this one does run 1kw nights - right?)
CKNB, Campbellton, NB, 950, 4-4-08, SRF-59 Barefoot, 2530 miles / 4072 km

I also have a slew of 1 kw x band loggings unlimited class mostly using a
4 foot loop with the SRF59.

1630 WRDW Augusta GA 1 05:35 30/03/2008 3788 miles 6096
km
1650 WHKT Portsmouth VA 1 05:32 30/03/2008 3399 5470
1670 WVVM Dry Branch, GA 1 05:37 30/03/2008 3887 6256
1680 WLAA Winter Garden, FL 1 05:40 30/03/2008 4019 6468
1620 WDHP Saint Croix USVI 1 06:10 02/04/2008 3931 6326
1700 WEUP Huntsville, AL 1 05:45 02/04/2008 3909 6292
1660 WFNA Charlotte NC 1 05:50 02/04/2008 3657 5885

I am fairly sure that I have had KVNS on 1700 Barefoot this would be 4794
miles but not willing to claim with no id - the station heard had oldies
and KVNS is usually dominant here on this freq - amazing when you think
they run 880 watts at night.

Hope these logs are of interest.

have you thought of a flea class for reception of 1 watters - I have one
at about 270 miles!.

regards for now

You might check the World Records at various transmitter powers. You
might
be setting records for 50 kW stations, for instance. In any case, a
great
set of loggings!
