I'd like to hear that vertical array. If you are around in the evenings the weekend, listen for me around 7290, plus or minus the broadcast crap.

Hi Steve,
At the moment my Globe King is tuned up for 3880/3885. I will retune it for 7290.
When that is done tomorrow, I will post it up on this BB. Sunset here is 8:25PM CDT.
For a contact tomorrow evening on 7290 I suggest 8PM CDT. Since you are in VA.
you must be on eastern time i.e. 9PM EDT. Should not be any problem with a contact. At this QTH, there is usually a weak BC station on 7285 and another on 7295. Normally
7290 is clear.
I will confirm this schedule with a post tomorrow. Let me know if you concur.

OK, Steve,
The Globe King is ready to go. 8PM CDT, tonight, 7290.
While retuning today I heard a Net of some kind on 7290.
Amazing how they congregate around what are usually AM frequencies.
Anyway if there is some SSB on 7290, I will flip to 7.285 or 7.295.

Steve,
I transmitted on 7290 from 7:55PM CDT to 8:20PM CDT. Nothing heard.
A BC station on 7.286 that was about it. We can try another day. I sent an
Email to PE1MPH asking him if was interested in working split on 40M. No
reply at this time.

Hi Steve,
I am clear for this Friday. 7290 at 8PM CDT.
Nothing heard from PE1MPH. I will send some Emails to his buddies.
Should be possible to scratch up some AMers to operate split on 40M.

What's the point of that split nonsense, when US amateurs can now, finally after many years, operate phone on some of the same frequencies as the Europeans?  We have 7125-7200 as common frequencies, and even Generals can work Europeans directly on 7175-7200.

My old ricebox is not happy if the membrane pushbuttons aren't exercised. This includes the VFO-2 button Grin

This stuff is slightly older than the Johnson 500 I used in the 80s.

Don, QSL your comments. After years of fighting to keep 14.286 open I think it
is simpler to to operate split on 40M. Transmitting around 7.290 and receiving
below 7.125 avoids SSB problems and BC problems. I like to operate DX SSB on 40M
and aggravating SSB operators by operating AM in 40M window is to no advantage.

Hi All,
Jean, F6AQK is planning to transmit AM on 7.185 this evening. I will not be able to make that sked. Perhaps someone would want to make contact with him. He will be on
5:00Z. His Email is kugler.jaen@neuf.fr

Yes a pity!!!
But on 7290 khz we cann't hear am from USA.
Mostly strong legale stations blowing all away in Europa.
And ther are some broadcaststations between 7060 - 7200.
I thought you in USA were using +/- 7160 khz for AM? Grin

Often in the morning I hear ssb from the USA between 7060 - 7200.
I tried many times to receive AM from your side...
We tried mostly around 7190 in AM.
When NO ssb stations are on air...
I am sure we can make once a qso with the USA!
The first point is.... we must find a good freq!

Hello AM Lovers on 40!

This morning I listen between 06.00 - 06.30 hour by me.
(04.00 - 04.30 London GMT Time)

I heard ONLY ssb stations from the USA.
All between +/- 7060 - 7190 khz.
Some K-, and W-stations I heard.... but no AM station.

Evenso the signals from the broadcasters were fair to good.
On +/- 7160, 7175 and 7185 Br.Casters...

But on 7200 and higher, impossible for me to hear AM.
Freq. in use by broadcast stations and big signals...
But maybe some freq. are free, I shall listen which...
If you can give me between 7060 - 7200 an AM freq....
Which you mostly use for AM, that can be handy for us.... Grin

Steve and other AM Lovers,
This morning (29 th juni) I heard AM on 7220 khz!!! Smiley
Time by me +/- 06.45 hour, thats +/- 04.45 Londen GMT time.
I am 100% sure I heard a USA station calling cq, cq...
That freq. were free by me (no broadcaststation!), we may not use that freq.....
But I listen in ssb to hear the man speaking.
When I listen in AM to weak to understand.
Next days I monitor again on +/- 7220 khz.

  At about 1:00 AM (+/-) local time this morning (last night here) I called
  CQ (seeking you on AM) on 7.220 mcs... No answer after several calls.

  By the way, I also am somewhat proficient with the CW mode and would
  change to it if called that way.

Maybe I heard you calling....
I listen next mornings (by me) around 7220 khz.
This morning I heard nothing on +/- 7220 khz.
When I hear a station, I write on this Forum!
Evenso I listen around 7160 & 7190 for AM.

Good dx,

Hello,

Sometimes I think: 'I am crazy....'.
Last Sundaymorning I going early out our bed. Grin
I heard weak signals on 3885.....
But therefore I went not early my bed!
No I want to monitor on 40 mtrs...
Time by me 04.30 - 05.30 that morning!
(02.30 - 03.30 Londen GMT time!)

Not many (ssb) stations on air.....
But on 7175 a very strong broadcaster.
I could not understand it, sounding like Asian?
And on 7165 a station, audio souding like RTTY.
On 7190 a weak broadcaster from???
And on 7220 a very strong Chinese? broadcaster.
Which had a big signal S9 +25 by me.
Not possible to receive AM on +/- 7290.
Big broadcast signals around that freq...

Around 05.30 I go to our bed again..... Grin

But AM Lovers...
This morning after 06.15 by me....
The freq. 7220 were totaly clean/free!!
The Chinese were off air?Huh

Sorry USA AM Lovers.... till now.....
I can NOT give you a clear/free AM freq. to use....
So we in Europe can hear you in AM on 40 mtrs.
I can only tell you: 7290 khz is NOT free in Europa!
