Ditto! I set up to monitor the test at my QTH in Vermont and sadly was unable 
to even hear the beacon this time out. Squint got me.

Charlie, can you tell me what the ERP was? I'm assembling a system with ~1kW 
ERP linear on S1 and would like to compare numbers.

It appears from the S1 agc levels that you ran the 900 mW around MA 185?

I hope we can make an S1/k contact early this summer when squint again favors 
us "K Banders".
