I get 500 volts plus, on the 80m loop fed with 450 ohm line, when it is left
floating in dry weather... Haven't had the cajones to try it with a
thunderstorm overhead...
As a farm boy, I quickly learned to avoid touching the electric fence around
the 120 acre pasture (yes, with the charger turned off - before you ask -
sheesh) in dry weather... This 3/4 mile wire would literally knock you
down... It, also, got hit by lightning on a regular basis - and it  was my
responsibility to disconnect the charger when storms were in the area to keep
it from being ruined....

Several postings have calculated Field Day scores by using 4 points
for each CW QSO and 2 points for each SSB QSO (and then applying a
power mutliplier of 2).  The rules say 2 points per CW contact and 1
point per phone contact.  It seems that someone's software already
factors the power multiplier into the number of points that it shows
for QSOs.
Yep your right K1EA's CT v 9.  The calculation is correct but the text is
certainly misleading.

It appears the DX Reflector is down again. Others besides myself are
not getting any messages. Would appreciate any late word about the 
group going to Libya so I can post it on our Northern/Southern DX 
packet system here in Calif.
