I just finished inputting your loggings into the Firsts and Records....
Congratulations! You pretty much rewrote the Records at most
transmitter power levels, for sure. My records also indicated that
the New Brunswick station was 1000 watts at night. And I used the Winter
Garden, FL for the 1 kW, since it was your most distant.
I'll publish the list about Thursday and see that you get a
Keep up the great work!

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
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
Nice 5 kw catch:
WLAM, lewiston, ME, 1470, 4-3-08, SRF-59 Barefoot, 2831 miles / 4557
New 1 kw record? (this one does run 1kw nights - right?)
CKNB, Campbellton, NB, 950, 4-4-08, SRF-59 Barefoot, 2530 miles / 4072
I also have a slew of 1 kw x band loggings unlimited class mostly
using a 4 foot loop with the SRF59.

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
- be setting records for 50 kW stations, for instance. In any case, a
- set of loggings!
