    ATTN HF OPS: Please note that NV4X reduced power to 5W and was copied by AA8SH at a distance 113.8 mi via ground wave. This bears a second mention because it demonstrates how little power is needed for local GW communication. These two stations are urban/suburban stations equipped with reasonably sized antennas.
