Fox Log With 100 MW Entry

I'm always proud to work the "fox hunts" and enjoy seeing my 5 watt signal listed in the log books. (especially when the fox is over a thousand miles from me) but when I see things like the entry I've highlighted below, I'm humbled.

I'd guess this guy is close to two thousand miles from "the fox".

Bill (K4KSR) worked the fox with 100 milliwatts!

Pulling the fox out of a pack of hungry hounds with power like this deserves a round of applause.

Great Job!!

ps....(On October 9th, 2002, with 1/2 Watt output, he worked VK3DBD who was approximately 15,000 miles distance and equal to 30,000 miles per watt).

So much for the "bigger is better" (and maximum power) philosophy.
