It has been amazing that I have have heard some of CoolAM's signal each night this week. He uses 20-25 watts into a one meter mobile antenna.
Obviously, I do not receive Cool with a booming signal, but it is quite surprising how well his signal manages to jump 4000 km. For those who may be curious, here are a couple short audio files from this week.
(remember, these are files from a ssb broadcast, so music is not clear )
Most ops uses dipole or inverted-V antennas, but I have also heard stations using other stick antennas, wall-mounted coils, even a metal roof. It is surprising what can radiate a decent signal!
