RE:What am I doing wrong?

Good luck on getting a PRACTICAL answer, I asked a sililar
question about ERP a few days
ago, and got a "lecture" on it being a function of how many
stations were transmitting, and that theoretically it should
only take 0.1 watt if nobody was transmitting....All of this I
knew like everybody else does here....

Can we please get several responses from poeple who are getting
through as to their erp??? It would be helpful to those of us
who can't seem to digi through ISS...
