Hi  Hans-Joachim,
                          I do not disagree with your power level for WCC
and WSL,  I  was just  commenting on the sheer power level used by these
stations, compared to the ususal  1 kw  transmitters used at coast radio
stations. The 1996  Admiralty List of Radio Signals  Volume 1,  notes the
high power used by WCC and WSL.  Many a time our own 1 kw transmitters had
sunk to 500 watts, before  a new pair of output valves were fitted, but we
still managed to cover  well out into the Atlantic by day and night.
Very best regards

Dear Finbar et AL;

THE POWER OF WCC and WSL I have taken from a 1959 list of coast and ship
stations, volume 1, coast stations.

Concerning a medium wave band, as stated on another occasion (DK8KWs medium
wave tx), we should choose a frequency sufficiently far from the 450 kHz to
468
kHz I.F. range of receivers, therefore I had pleaded for 410 kHz (or
somewhat
higher).

Stations like
 Chatham  WCC and Amaganset WSL, were mentioned, but their power levels
were
 exceptional, just imagine   30-40 kw, a bit over the top , and to be
quite
 honest, their signals never struck me as being that much more potent than
 the rest.
How about a new  band around      440 khz.  After  136 khz it would be  a
 breeze.
