Hello AMRADers,

Further DX  on LF   :-)

Further to my earlier tests in the Dolley Madison Library, tonight, I
decided to try my antenna  _in my own backyard_ ... (considereing all
the lights, dimmers, etc)

By raising my remotely-tunable antenna up about 15 ft between two trees,
I was able to hear at 22:50h tonight on a portable Radio Shack BC

198kHz    DIW Dixon NC
212kHz    ESN  Easton MD
216 Khz   CLB Wilmington NC  (very strong)
222kHz    DA Ft. Belvoir VA  (fairly weak)
227kHz    GDX    Goodwill Lake VA

Conclusions: for reception purposes, (as previously established by Bill
Bowers in his LowFers article), a remotely-tunable antenna is more that
