On 40m (7.160) yesterday afternoon, Darrell/WA5VGO broke in right 
after I did, it sounded like he had modified the audio on his 
KW-1, it sounded so good.  You could have knocked me over with a 
feather when he said he was running around 35w from a homebrewed 
rig, running a single 807, modulated by a pair of 6L6's.

 From Houston to San Antonio, 35w should -not- be 25db/S-9 :-)

Great Job, Darrell!

73 = Best Regards,
