One evening in the winter of 1962-63 I fired up my ARC-5 with a pair of 1625's as a balanced modulater to create double sideband on 75 meters and said "This is K9DKW speaking coast to coast". A voice answered from southern Georgia, saying "With that signal, y'all are talkin' round the world! What kinda power or antenna y'all runnin' up there?" At which point I had to admit that it was a full wave vertical (250') with 120 radials. I'd hooked up to my rig after shutting down WDOR-AM 910 in Sturgeon Bay, WI at sunset a couple hours earlier. Used my Johnson Viking Matchbox out at the dog house at the end of our long RG-17/U feedline.

I used to use a daytimer AM broadcast tower on 160 meters at night. Put out an awesome signal. Used to set up the ham rig and antenna tuner on top of the ATU box at the tower base.
