Calm yourself Mike. It happened. I can see why not to post weak
unusual signals. Ever heard of spotlight propagation.

	The RBN Shows tons of hits for UY0ZG CQing on 1826.9/1827 around
0500z +/-

	Just tossin’ it out there.

	A VY0 on 160m is very rare.

	Did not write down his complete call, Strange propagation, no one
called him. No explanation. Only posted it in case someone wanted to
listen on that freq tonight. Listened many times it was very readable,
and it was a Vy zero. Did not call him. Having some transmitter prob,
Q3 in the K3 is shorted. trying to get a signal out is a chore.
Looking for a Temp cure..

Callsign? did you work him?

There are no RBN Skimmer hits

nor any DX cluster spots when searched on DXscape.

nor any VY0 mentioned on the ON4KST chat page w/I the last 2 days.

There was a VY0 calling CQ on 1826.5 last evening. Looked it up as an

afterthought and its very far north in Canada. Unfortunately he did

not get any callers.

If someone has a 1930's Amateur Radio Call Book they would like to

donate, or sell please email me directly.
