This was E-skip, not tropo...but Jeff's point holds: good propagation knows 
no low-power limits. People have logged translators via e-skip and tropo; 
it's not uncommon for a good trop opening here in Rochester to bring in a 
couple of translators from Syracuse, 90 miles away.

And Laurence, it's been many years now since the FCC broke down the 
class/channel restrictions. You can now have stations of any class on any 
channel, and when you get outside the crowded northeast, it's not at all 
uncommon to have things like full class C 100 kW facilities on 92.7 or 94.3.
