Topband: another carrier

  Preliminary look says somewhere around N7UA  or Camano Island. I cannot
remember the ham on Camano Is call.
Anybody know either to have them check signal strength?

I make it about 125 to 130 degrees from Victoria, BC (local time 
10:40am PDT, so, likely ground wave, but not strong).   The AM 
broadcaster on 1680 kHz nulls a few degrees further south.

This is using a tuned medium wave loop antenna, so it doesn't resonate on
160m, and local noise tends to queer things in a more north-south direction,
but it seems to be a reasonable direction 
finder otherwise.   A west facing Flag with adjustable termination 
can null the signal also, so I don't think it is at 130+180 = 310 degrees.

best wishes,
