2147 OM voice "testing 1 2 3 4 5, 1 kW" well, that explains how both Chris and I can copy this at this time of day! Good signal but faded out at 2148. Or went QRT. Hard to say which.
2148 "WJAN testing 1 kW" That one came in loud and clear.
2150-51 Back to 1 kW. Then 750 W. (Sounds about the same here). 500 W - a little tiny bit lower. 250 W - lower still. Slightly there at 100 W. Good at 1 kW.
