My first time on 222; I bought the DEM kit at Dayton, and the
antenna went up at 11 am Saturday.  Several stations were passing
to 222.160 or 170; why so high,  out of the weak signal subband? 
Here in N.E. Ohio 222.16 is used for PacketCluster linking, so I
had to suggest a frequency lower in the band.  
Tropo was poor; in my first half hour Sunday morning I made only
3 QSOs.  Six was obviously a different story, although northeast
Ohio is a frustating location on six, too far from the east coast
for tropo, not far enough for Es.  VE9AA and VY2/W3EP were the
only Es QSOs in that direction.
