Jim,

I want to thank you for the experiment you carried. out. Maybe you noticed,
that some of the stations usually giving at least a listener's report, but
sometimes an accuracte field strength report (like myself) have neither
tried to call you nor given you any acknoledgment of having heard you.

Well, in a way you picked the "wrong" weekend. We had a very nice
inter-German LF meeting last weekend in Nuernberg. Walter, DJ2LF hosted
myself and Markus, DF6NM on Friday night, and Markus organized a wonderful
barbeque on Saturday afternoon after the Nuernberg flee-market
"Flotronica". We also met Wolf, DF2PY (remember, the guy with the big
signal) and some other LF enthusiasts (yes, I was wearing my famous
t-shirt) during the rallye. Gamal also was present during the bbq, and we
had all spend some wonderful time together discussing the LF situation in
general and specifically in Germany. Throughout a mwasurment system with my
1m-loop and the MV62 level meter mounted in my car, we measured Walters ERP
to be about 6 mW, and Markus' ERP to be around 10 mW (my own ERP: 30 mW).
This again showed me that we all tend to over-estimate our ERP when we
simply follow the I^2 x Resistance approach.

Besides buying some old ceramics on the rally, I got hold of another
wonderful Adret synthesizer, which covers 0 to 1 MHz in 1 Hz steps, at an
output of 100 [email protected] Ohms (so to speak a complete QRP transmitter for LF
...).
So, all in all a very nice weekend, making new friends and getting new
insights into the operation conditions of our QSO partners. But we missed
your tests, Jim, sorry for that.
