If he is less than 1/2 mile away, he probably could not log it - his
receiver probably had a front end melt down caused by the
(obviously) 1000 KW.  If he did hear the contact, then maybe he
should evaluate if the exchange he "thought" he heard was
reasonable - since the receiver is still working....  (I gather that
ALL east coast contesters of any signifiance are within a 1 mile
radius :-)
