Rich and all,
Thanks for running the simulation. I have wondered how the two “rule modes” compare.
From your table there is a tremendous difference. Though your table doesn’t include 30 meters (.019 mile) one can infer that the field strength is much greater than 14 uV/m, and that a decent signal will exist at about 1000 feet from the antenna.
Too bad we have the antenna limitation. For example cell phones operate in the hundreds of mW. range (variable with a max about 600mw if I recall) but do so with a decent antenna and can be heard by the tower for miles. Same for 250 mW 2 meter ham handhelds.
