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.
