Ken, K5DNL / WG2XXM, was doing some system testing and running his CW beacon around 475 kHz today.  Signal levels were a very respectable S6 around 1730z for 5w ERP on the 200 mile path.

The recording was not normalized in Audacity to bring the levels up.  It represents easy “arm chair” CW copy that is often experienced on 630-meters.
