Actually, yes you are. Aircraft radios, in general, are 25 watts. Aircraft that are in the air at altitude can be heard from 200 miles away but the lower they are to the ground, the smaller the "footprint" is.

You won't hear one C-17 pilot. Yesterday I heard him call for Crash at C/Sherman seems he dipped his wing and broke off an antenna. They had a crew out looking for it on the runway..lol

I wonder if it was from the massive crosswinds!
Strong crosswind landing + inexperianced pilot = bent airplane!
