Yes, Roy, I agree 100%....I've lowered my L band power experimentally, 
deliberately, from what I was using when Leila strikes, and I can still 
hear myself perfectly well....I use it quite often on the net when I am net 
control to let the check-in (or whomever) know that I copied their last 
transmission before they (OR SOME ADJOINING STATION) got belted!  I've been 
using L band up to ~25° offpoints with little problems...
