1901*2^1958701 is prime! (58967 decimal digits)
It is not much but it is a start, once I determined how to use NewPGen.

Also, newpgen is very very slow for this form of prime. The srsieve family of programs is an order of magnitude or so faster; srsieve to create the sieve initially, then sr1sieve to sieve a single "k" of k*2^n1. If you're interested in multiple k's, sr2sieve is your hero. sr1sieve speaks the same format as newpgen, so you can also use newpgen to create a sieve file, and then use sr1sieve to find factors. I forget if it's 10x or 20x faster, but it's really really fast. Command line, though all the good stuff is, around here. Have a look at https://www.rieselprime.de/default.htm to see what primes are known for individual k's. For 1901, that's 2, 62, 66, 210, 290, 602, 726, 938, 998, 21342, 195870, 239030, 335018.

69*2^66399711 is prime! (1998833 decimal digits) Time : 2777.921 sec.
This prime has taken many years for Vincent and me to find, but, oh boy, is it worth it! Last fiddled with by paulunderwood on 20200206 at 07:29

If there is 1+ closeby we'll have it soon as well.
69 seems very unpredictable now because of the huge gap, yet odds are they group a little together.
