Picked up WLW 700 Cincinnati from Winnipeg Tonight - 966 miles distance,


Not sure if this is a propagation freak of nature, but tonight I picked up WLW Cincinnati, Ohio @ 700 Hz from Winnipeg, Canada on my 80 Ft Longwire Balun Antenna. According to the City to City Distance, this is 966 Miles. Reception was fairly clear, I was quite surprised as they were talking about 100 degree temps and flooding in Mississippi.

Wasn't much reception difference between winding the Antenna Lead-in around my Grundig G3 or plugging it into the Antenna Jack. I am a bit concerned about plugging that 80 footer Antenna directly into the G3 Antenna Input re Overloading Concerns or blowing out the Radio. Is this a valid concern?
