Great job! You got things dialed in in no time.
Power into the 90' vertical here is limited by the voltages produced at the feedpoint. Anything over about a KW input to the antenna creates voltages to exceed 25 KV. Corona sets in soon after a KW. I draw a 3 inch flame to a screw driver at the feed point! I like to run at about 800 w.
I am going to try some ground wave tests to see if this long wave can reach the west coast! I'll bet you get me groundnwave with no trouble. I am trying this with Steve VE7SL and will shoot you an email when I am on and if you have the time see if you get the ground wave sigs-73 and keep up the good work, Bob WG2XRS/4-73, WE2XEB-137, WE2XGR/6-500
