0500Z 11 Oct checked 600 mtrs. /10 was very loud easy arm-chair copy at 7 dBm above the nasty local noise floor of
90 dBm/75. My grid is EM13tb. Receiver is a Cushman CE-24
Here's how Dex sounds at EM13tb using just an Icom 735and a little 6-inch tuned ferrite loopstick antenna on my desktop.
And his signal is nearly twice as loud now as it was when I recorded this. Note: I've used my sound processing software
to speed-up the tempo of the CW in order to reduce file size and also to show that Dex is QSO quality tonight.

was a 1200' sloper going NE up adjacent mountain. QRN level was set arbitrarily at S3 and your sig played tag with it,
some cycles of the message inaudible, others peaking QRK 4 for brief periods. "North Carolina" was often armchair

You're the first 600M station I've heard, after trying off and on for a few months. I mainly do MW and LW DXing now due to space restrictions for an antenna. I have a lot of local noise on the lower broadcast band and LW, but your signal made it through well, usually a 569 but fading at time to about a 339.
