Re: East, West, and in between on 160m
Like Rick, I find the propagation better N/S than E/W. Worked N2MLP in PA last night. Saw a couple of faint traces, but could not get any decode from them. Only heard a couple of CW signals and no SSB last night.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

I would like to hear how you are top loading that vertical for 160M...I am using a Cushcraft AP8A..and can almost get it to tune on 160..well, get the swr down to 2:1 anyway..but who knows what the R and X are..It could be a worm warmer on that band.

Can someone help me understand what is going on with 160m and the group? Seems like up and down the east coast we can make contacts. Jim - K5SP - just north of Dallas Texas isn't having much luck and neither is Barry - VA7GEM - in North Vacouver BC. I've worked John - KE4JB in NY - 1055 miles from my QTH, but haven't seen Jim - 963 miles from me. I can understand not seeing Barry - that is 2587 miles.
