OK, the 40m beam pulls you in at a consistent s-9, phenominal sigs for AM reception here on the west coast, my hats off to you X-Fm! I would guess things to be a min of at least 3kw and one kick ass vertical or multi element beam. Keep up the good work!

Now  listening on the beam has you at a consistant S-9, phenominal sigs for AM here on the west coast. My hats off to you! Keep up the great work.  I would guess at least 3kw and one kick ass vertical or a multi element beam.

Awesome bass here on the left coast...some heavy fading a few minutes ago, now coming though strong again.  Nice to give the tubes a work out on my recently resurrected Hammarlund HQ-129-X ;D
