I agree. If everyone is expected to respect a 1810-1825 DX window for the
JA's, and 1825-1840 for other DX, that leaves only 1800-1810 for domestic
CW. But, I seem to recall, 1810 is supposed to be reserved as a QRP calling
frequency, and 1800-1810 for "digital" modes. There are plenty of wide open
spaces above 1900, but lots o' luck getting any response to a CQ on CW in
that portion of the band.
Have fun customizing MSN Messenger learn how here!
