Hello JA Topbanders!

        If any of you will be QRV in the ARRL 160, you may want to
use your 1907.5 to 1912.5 window in addition to 1810-1825.  During
the CQ 160 CW, the 1810-1825 window was filled with very strong USA
stations CQ-ing with little chance to hear JA's between them.  I listened
several times in the upper window but never heard anyone using it.
You may want to consider TX above 1.9 MHz and RX below 1.810 during
the brief East Coast window to JA (about 1130-1230 UTC for the ARRL 160) 
if you want to get some East Coast multipliers!

                                                73,  Bill  W4ZV
