Know bad frequencies- great resource here: http://www.k8nd.com/TopbandBadFreqs.pdf
However…a “best practice” on 160m is NEVER call CQ on an exact frequency.
Why is it ever necessary to call on 1830, 1820, 1822 etc. exactly? Call CQ on 1820.3, or 1820.4 or 1822.6 or 1827.8.
Perhaps its human nature to want to use a nice “round” number, but this accomplishs nothing except increase the chances of being on a harmonic QRG.
Its surprising how many DX-peds will do this too. We don't need a nice frequency with no decimal points! You will be found just fine with all the skimmers and spotters out there.
