Many of us worked Charles KY4P as S92SS several years
ago. He's an engineer with VOA, recently returned to Sao Tome
and now is once again active as S9SS on Topband. Read
Charles's story here...
...and you'll understand why S9LA completely gave up on 160
and why it takes a dedicated Topbander like Charles to hear
through the nearby 600 kW VOA station on 1530 kHz, not to
mention a full-time 20 kW station on 945 kHz and the usual
Equatorial QRN! Were it not for Charles, most of us would
still need S9 on Topband. Thanks for your persistence and
low-band know-how Charles! Maybe he'll go to 3C0, 9M0, 9U5,
and other needed spots in the Equatorial zone next.
73, Bill W4ZV
