 Hiya gang!
       2 members of the Southeastern DX Club are down at the 
Cabo Rojo Contest Club facility in Western Puerto Rico getting 
ready for this weekend's CQ 160m CW Contest. They are having a 
little difficulty getting the vertical tuned to resonance and 
might switch over to an inverted L. The CRCC WPX operations have 
never really "felt" very loud on 160 using the dipoles we have 
strung up. I would very much appreciate signal `reports from the 
guys down in Puerto Rico on 160m. They plan to be on tonight 
according to Paul,K4UJ,"come hell or high water". If the new 
antenna works well for them we'll probably use it for the March 
SSB WPX contest. The call they will be using will be either
KP4/K4UJ, KP4/K4WA or WP4NMS. Give em a call and, if you find 
the time, drop me a note.

Is Voice Blaster still available from LTA?  Says it works with CT and NA.   
 I wonder if It would also work with TR?  Price is right.  I wonder what   
sound cards it is compatible with.

Message-ID: <199701232218.RAA65234 at mule0.mindspring.com>

I have had numerous requests about the Dx window.  It is 1830 to 1835Khz.   

The old window left out over 50% of the DX (OY, LZ, PY etc).

I had three requests to widen the window to 1830 to 1840 and one to do away
the window.

1830 to 1835 KHZ
