Date   

160 Meters Tonight?

Mike Besemer <mwbesemer@...>
 

All this talk about 160 meters has me wanting to play.  Winter will be over before we know it and 160 will be nothing but noise again.

I’m going to start CQing about 0200 at 1.807 + about 1700.  Since the last time I was on 160, a nasty raucous noise has appeared centered at about 1000 Hz and about 500 Hz wide, so I have to stay pretty far North in the bandpass.

73,

Mike

Have an MFJ-2990 which I got from a friend, but he lost the mounting hardware -rats !   I can order the parts for 60 bucks, but budget seems to change every time I get ready to order.  Murphy strikes again.

The old dual sloper was hombrew and worked FB  up until it quit working.

My Gap Titan DX has only loaded on 160 one time, made one contact, and have not been able to get it to load since.  I do have a wire up now, might try on 160 to see what I can do.  May be on Friday/Saturday, what time?

I plan on using 1.807 as the base frequency.  1.838 is supposed to be the European PSK freq, but I have little hope of making any EU contacts on this limited antenna.   Hope to work you!  You would be a "ATNO" for me on 160.

First, thanks to all who responded to my posting.  I decided I will try to get the antenna up and work 160m this coming Friday and Saturday evening.  Probably will get on about 0200 UTC (9PM EST) both evenings.  Be advised my temporary antenna is an end fed inverted L only 53' long with the horizontal portion only up about 20'.  I doesn't hear the best, but I will be listening and CQing.  Sure would like to work you all - including any I have already worked on 160m!  Thanks again and hope to see you on the waterfall Friday or Saturday evening.

Anyone have info about 160m propagation lately?  Has there been PSK31 activity on the band?  I can only get on when I rig a temporary antenna (HOA restrictions) so I'm in the dark as to current status.  I still need 4 more 160m stations to fill the Top Band endorsement.  If things go according to plan I will be setting up the 160m end fed inverted L for the Valentine Sprint.  In the meantime, if 160m is hopping, I'll get it up and get on.  Even though it means taking it down each morning - hi hi!

New DXCC !

Jerry N9AVY
 

Republic of Kosovo (Z6) has been added to the DXCC List of current entities, increasing the total number of current DXCC entities to 340. The addition of Kosovo raises to 331 the required number of current entities confirmed to qualify for DXCC Honor Roll; Top of Honor Roll is 340. DXCC award accounts are being tabulated to reflect the change.
This change qualifies as an “event,” effective on January 21, 2018, at 0000 UTC. Nothing is retroactive.
