The way to calculate the right index is easy:
DXing ULR Index=distance (in km) / txer power (in watts). 
Example 1: 2,000 km / 80,000 W = 0.025 Index= 0.025.
Example 2: 2,000 km / 1,500 W = 1.33.
Overall index: 0.025+1.33 = 1.355.
Jorge and All.

My highest scoring Ultralight Radio catches would be a couple of New Zealand Longwave beacons (NDB's) received during the August 2020 Rockwork Cliff DXpedition in Oregon state
362-WK is a 25 watt beacon received on a Tecsun PL-380 Ultralight and 12 inch Longwave FSL antenna at 11,017 km for an index of 440.68

366-SF in Springfield, New Zealand is a 50 watt beacon received with the same gear at 10,977 km for an index of 219.54

We plan to go to the same wacky ocean cliff in one week to try our luck again!
