Hello Topbanders,

after checking with several JA and US Topbanders, we will use the 
following frequency combination during our 160m operations:

During JA openings our TX frequency will be 1.821 MHz (QSX 1.825 MHz).

After the JA window is closed we may change to 1.824.5 MHz (QSX up 5) 
for North America, in case 1.821 is covered there with QRM.

We will use a TITANEX V160E vertical for transmitting but our major 
challenge will be the reception side, just as usual….

We expect a beverage not to perform very well over the high conducting 
soil directly on the beach, let alone the space limitations. Therefore 
we will use a Pre-Amp/FES (KD9SV) in connection with a Pennant receiving 
antenna and also with a K9AY system. I also will bring my well proved 
Coax loop with me.

We are looking forward to meet you on the Topband!

PS: We will make a short video about the operation and therefore we 
would appreciate if some of you could film a short sequence when working 
5A7A. It would be good if the audio (speaker) could be heard on the 
record. Please use PAL-system, as it is not easy for us to convert NTSC 
into PAL. In case of any questions, please don’t hesitate to write to me 
under dk7pe at
