I had exactly the opposite happen.  While CQing on 28.066 in the 10m test
last weekend, I got an e-mail from a ham in Canada (rates were slow...) (a
VE1) who said he had his CB on CH16 and could hear me calling there 479.  I
think he said that 16 is around 27.155.  I took my handheld R-10 outside,
and couldn't hear myself xmitting anything down there, .  I've got a 419
filter in line before the amp (titan425 ~1.2kw).   He was using a long wire
for an antenna.  Pretty strange, but we just let it pass as overload on his
end?  Any other ideas?

I hate to be out there spewing crap, so if anyone has any comment on how I
sounded, I'd appreciate a report-
