    I'm assuming you're referring to the OH expedition to PJ9W in 1990 SSB
?.  They did 51.3M.  I looked back 3 years and did not find 6Y M/M operation
in WW SSB, at least not in the leader box, and much less "MM world record
beating", which on SSB would be 78 M by CN8WW.  Different year, different
mode (?), different competion.  I agree that well-placed verticals work
great, but I think that yagis at a decent height will win...

Please correct me and HNY
