Re: Gonna give 160m a try

John this is what I found on the ARRL website.

Recommended ARRL 160 Meters Band Plan (1.8 - 2.0 MHz.)

1.800 - 1.810 Digital Modes
1.810 CW QRP
1.800 - 1.840 CW
1.843 - 2.000 SSB, SSTV and other wideband modes
1.910 SSB QRP
1.995 - 2.000 Experimental
1.999 - 2.000 Beacons

found at,
http://www.arrl.org/announce/reports-0107/160-meter.html

I thought this should be sent to the list for discussion.

Folks . . . I'm just a "novice" on 160m . . . but I thought after
checking both this list archive and recent discussion we were somewhat
"safe" to use 1838.15 kHz. Am I wrong to assume that? I know perhaps
there are others who can "hear" better than I . . . and my QRNed QTH is
not much help . . . but evidently I was heard in Georgia! After calling
cq for about 1/2 hour I received the following message via e-mail after
noticing something like cw within 10 Hz of my BPSK31 waterfall:



Hi OM,

The USA bandplan calls for all Digital Modes to be between 1800 and
1810.

You will find most of the activity follows the bandplan.

You can find the bandplan on the ARRL web site.

I'd appreciate any thought directly (and perhaps off the reflector) to
me

Hey! Jim,
No problem. I was trying to get a QSO for the 070 QRP award. I have
never turned down the wick on this rig to <5 watts. Remarkable to me that we
worked at all. :) Live and learn eh! cuagn soon, Ernie

Sorry about the short QSO Ernie. SWRs went high. Someday I'll get a bigger
antenna. Hi.

Re: QRP Tri-Band Award.

W2LTB@...
 

It works. Hi. When conditions are right I've talked to Reunion Island with 5
watts.
Hopefully I will be on more this weekend to help everyone else if they need
it. Am going to fire up the rig after a Merit Badge Fair.

Hoping you got your three,
Jim

Well . . . W1AW in code practice came in +60/S9 here so I guess there
was some propagation. I will keep trying as time permits . . . each
night from 2300z (except this weekend I expect to be on ten meters).

Hi All-

With Kathy's help I just replaced the top 75m load coil with a 160m load
coil on "our" 5BTV antenna . . . I've done this before and it does work
somewhat (slightly better than a dummy load?) . . . and might even
qualify for 'qrp' at 20 Watts out of the rig . . . anyway if you are
able please take a listen on 1838.1 kHz for my cq . . . the next hour or
so (that makes it 2300Z). John, K3NJ

If anyone needs Guantanamo, Jay, KG4MO is on 20m right now. Easy.

Good operator, and he moves quickly.

qrp

JHudak3rd@...
 

Just a note to say that QRP is alive on PSK. Just worked Peter, AG4KI/qrp on
20 meters. Nice 2 way. Thanks Peter. Peter mentioned a Small Wonder Labs QRP
rig and it reminded me that I built one last Fall. It works great, but I'm
trying to eliminate some of the qrp rigs I have since I bought the Yaesu FT
817. If there is any interest in this rig, please get in touch with me. If
anyone is thinking of building one, believe me, they are a fine rig. Highest
quality parts and board, and a very good manual to work with. Tuning it was
as simple as it gets. Once built and set up, it's "hand off" operation.

Just went through some recent mail and this is what I found on qrpers:
AG4KI, Peter
WM2U, Ernie
W3HF, Steve
W2LTB, James
WB5NHL, Dave
K8YS, Bob
KA3X, Jay

Well, that's a start, anyone else willing to try qrp? Let us know. Most rigs

have a little knob that you can turn down the power with, or you can add a
lot of coax to attenuate the signal. Say what?

Yeah, but make sure you switch OUT that coax on receive!
