TopBand: ARRL DX CW 160M Primetime
Thu, 18 Feb 1999 09:23:30 PST
Over the years I have found it most efficient for DX stations to show up
on 160 meters either on the top of the hour or on the half-hour between
0200 and 1100 UTC. That seems to maximize the number of possible
stations and/or multipliers that can be worked in the shortest possible
period of time. Its a win-win for everyone.
Also everyone should avoid the even frequencies due to foreign QRM
(especially 1820, 1830, 1840, etc.) On Aruba, 1830 khz is almost
useless except for the very strongest stations.
Good luck to everyone this weekend.
