OK, Henk,
7.220 it is. Perfectly fine with me. Same time schedule as I am limited on other evenings this week. I am retired but work now more than ever. :-).
 73,
John, AA5T

Deal John!
I try! listening every morning between 06.15 - 06.50 hour (by me)!
Maybe you can get more AM stations on +/- 7220 khz. who call?!
Perhaps a 'little-pe1mph' AM net? Grin
When I hear a station, I put info in this Item.

Good transmission,

OK, Henk,
6:15 to 6:45 your time. 7.220, Of course, by posting this frequency and time
here on AMFone, anyone is invited to join in. If you can hear us on 7.220 +/-
then we will figure out a good spot for you to transmit. With patience we will
together work it out.

Hi Tim,
Thanks nice to hear from you. You are a little off the directivity of my antenna.
I use a 3 element vertical parasitic array aimed at Europe. 6DB gain.
Why don't we join forces another evening. With 2 of us calling we stand a better
chance of being heard. I have contacted another EU AMer, that wants to join in.
His call F6AQK, his name Jean.
In any event let's, chat on the band one day.
73,
John
P.S. As you say plenty of QRM around 7.220 this evening.

The results, this morning!

I listen between 06.15 - 06.45 hour by me.
My receiver Kenwood R 5000.
Ant. +/- 45 mtrs wire, connect with ant. tuner to receiver.

- 7225 KC?? station in ssb often on air early mornings
- 7208 K8?? station in ssb talking with a mobile station

- 7220 K4?? station calling often CQ, very good to hear!

I am 100% sure there were on 7220 khz AM stations on air!!!
But signals to weak for me to hear audio in AM mode...
Therefore I need to listen in ssb mode....
Freq. between 7215 - 7225 were this morning totaly free from BC-stations.
So you (AM Lovers) can use these freq. between 06.15 - 06.45 for Europe...

I listen next days again on above freq. (7215 - 7225 khz). Grin
Maybe conditions were bad today?
When I listen, its raining in Holland.

Good transmissions,

Hi Henk,
OK you heard me calling CQ on 7220. I alternated between calling you and CQ.
I transmitted at 0500 GMT+2 and 0600 to 0625 GMT +2. That is an OK start.
I will not be on again until next Tuesday due to business. Perhaps Tim, VE6PG
would make a schedule with you. Post a mesage here on AMFONE.net for him.

Hi Henk,
Some confusion here. I did not give a K, call, I gave AA5T. However, I was calling
CQ,CQ. There were SSB stations above and below 7.220. I was between them.
I did call you PE1MPH many times. It could have been a K station that I did not hear.
We will probably never know for sure.
I will try again next Tuesday.

Hi Henk,
If you listened on SSB you must have heard the AM carrier. The audio might
be missing but the carrier should have been heard at 350 watts.

Hello AM Lovers,

Last days I heard totaly nothing around 7220 in AM!
You know I listen mornings between 06.15 - 06.45 hour by me!
Between 7220 - 7225 khz is (mostly) free.
And on 7215 khz I hear sometimes a carrier, without audio.

Maybe next days I can hear am.....?

This morning I listen between 06.00 - 06.50 hour (by me!).
I am 100% sure I heard +/- 06.05 a station calling: CQ, CQ, CQ on 7220 khz.
Sorry the station mention his call to fast for me to understand it correct!
And between +/- 06.35 - 06.45 I could hear 2 stations in AM.
But conditions dropping down, not possible to understand who speaking.
Later I received a 'naked weak' carrier on 7220, without audio.

   I was on calling CQ at that time Henk... What I spoke was
   "CQ CQ CQ, Seeking You on 7220 in the AM mode" and made
   multiple transmissions from 0400 to  0415 GMT...

    At about 0420 or so I heard a carrier appear on frequency and
    had a 15 minute chat with Carl, KB3RDT in North West Pennsylvania.
 
     He was running 100 watts to a dipole at 30 meters high and my out-
     put was about 350 watts to the 200' Center Fed Zepp at 30 meters
     high.

Hi Tim,
Great to chat with you on 40M AM. I am having some trouble with my AM amp.
Seems as soon as it gets hot it has a problem. I will replace  it with a backup amp.
I usually use my Globe King but don't have crystals for 7.220.
Seems you are in VE3 land. I used to work in Detroit and have visited most of VE3 land. Did not receive any reply from the guys in EU.
Thanks for the call.

Nice to hear you calling, no problem to hear the words: CQ, CQ.... Grin
Then I heard you later on 7220 again with another station?
But then very difficult to copy, maybe conditions were 'worse' then before?

This morning (Saturday by me) I heard totaly nothing around 7220 khz.
The BC station on 7180 khz were good to copy (S2 - S6), but I could not understand it.
Sounding like Asia or China language?

Tomorrow (Sundaymorning), just after 06.00 hours, F6AQK will be on 40 mtrs.
Perhaps around 7185 khz, ofcourse in AM, calling.
