Abstract: All primes of the form $ k \cdot {2^n} + 1$ for k odd, $ 1 \leqslant k < 150$, $ 1 \leqslant n \leqslant 1500$, have now been computed. Those not previously published are given here. Numbers with $ 151 \leqslant k \leqslant 999$ and $ n \leqslant 600$ were also tested. Three new factors of Fermat numbers and a large pair of twin primes were found.
