I ran the 250TH rig into a dummy load with Bob Wills music playing
(checking out the new modulator, reactor choke combo) at 100w, and out
of curiosity, drove around the neighborhood listening to it, with the
mobile rig. I was hurrying back to shut the thing off, when I was still
hearing it S-9, 2 miles away, but relieved when a signal in Oklahoma
covered it up, when he came on and called CQ at 3pm. *whew*.
