Hi Henk,
  You said:

 "But I am sure around 06.25 I heard a station calling cq, cq 40 mtrs.
Signal were weak to fair on 7220 khz, with a strong fading.
I did 'all I could' to copy the call... but very difficult."


  That may have been me?? I was on calling cq every 5 to 7 minutes on 7220khz from about 0350Z to 0430Z. Again, no answers.

Chuck maybe.... Cheesy
Sorry I could not copy the call correct...
And after 06.30 the freq. 7220 were totaly clean, no other stations calling.

But Chuck now after 06.15 hour it is getting light by us....
So we are comming later in the year.... (you understand me!).

This week (tomorrow) my last holiday...
We got in Holland plenty rain in July and August!
Next week I keep on listening, before I go again to my work. Grin
I hope I can log many AM stations on 7220 from the USA.

Hello,

Now we have in Europa Wintertime.
A pity about 7220 khz not free just after 06.00 hour (05.00 Londen GMT).
But one hour later....
Sorry I can not find a clean/free freq. below 7200 khz for AM.
Often B.C.-stations and often ssb-stations on air.

But still every Sunday, just after 6 o'clock Jean F6AQK calling.
Mostly around 7185 khz in AM.

Greetings,

Jean is (mostly) every Sundaymorning calling around 7185 khz.
(around 05.00 Londen GMT time, by us 06.00 hour)
If freq. is busy, he goes qsy to better freq.

This morning I heard only a strong Italian station in ssb on 7190 calling.
But he blows all away from the freq. near 7190 khz.
Therefore I did not call Jean, because I heard him not calling!

Hello AM Lovers,
This morning already before 06.00 I heard Jean calling on 7185 khz!
So I went to my studio.... and say 'Hello Jean'.
He heard me.... I using only 25 Watts!

The results on 7185 khz:
- Jean, F6AQK, max. S9+, good audio
-  Fortunato, 9H1ES, max. S4, heavy fading!

But a pity... contesters on the band.
And sometimes they blowing Fortunato complete away!
We heard no USA AM station....

Thats all for this morning,

Henk

Hello AM Lovers,
This morning I listen just after 06.00 o'clock.
And I heard Fortunato 9H1ES calling on 7185 khz.

My S-meter goes from 0 - 2.
Some moments I hear some words good.
Then a little moment Fortunato were complete gone.
I heard him talking about Jean (F6AQK)!
But I heard no Jean...
Later a very strong ssb station calling on 7180.
So for not possible to hear am on 7185 khz.
Therefore I go to my bed again....

Later in the morning, I were in our livingroom.
And my receiver still standing on 7185 khz.
I heard Italians in AM on +/- 7193 khz.Time were around 10.15 hour by me!
I heard IW5CI in qso with PA2TB
And IW has a big signal: S7
Henk (PA2TB) only S3 by me, but good to copy.

I thought: 'Where is this Henk comming from. Never heard him before on 40 mtrs'.
And pity... I did heard him not back on the freq.
I were wondering why, because I heard more Italians calling!

Later I got an email from Henk, his fuse were broken!

Thats all for this morning,

Henk

Hello AM Lovers,
This morning (11 mrt 2012 I listen to this band.
Between 05.50 - 06.15, our time, I listen.

- 7165 Broadcaster, S3
- 7175 Broadcaster, S7
- 7180 Broadcaster, S1

- 7185 9H1ES, Fortunato, calling cq in AM, S7

Ofcourse I calling to him, but no reply! Grin
Maybe +/- 25 Watts is not enough?
But I were wondering how good I heard him.
Total alone and free on this freq.

It seems that F6AQK, Jean, were evenso calling.
But I did not heard him....

And between 7185 - 7195 nothing on air!!

Hello,

This morning I have been listening to 40 mtrs.
At 06.30 hour by me I heard a BC station comming on air on 7120 khz.
It sounding like an Arabic station, only max. S3 by me.

Freq. on the left & right from this station are free/clean.
I mean +/- 7115 and around 7127 khz.

You know we may not transmit there, but I can receive...
So I keep my ears and eyes on 7115 & 7127 khz mornings.
When I hear an AM station, you read this info under this 'Topic/Subject'. Grin

Yes I can transmit...
But first I want to receive AM from the USA! Smiley
On my own receiver in Dokkum.

'Dokkum node globaltuners.com' is not my webreceiver.
This is from another Henk, qth close to Dokkum.

Hello AM Lovers,

This morning, April the first, on 40 good conditions!!!!
Between 06.00 - 06.30 hour by me.
On 7185 khz I heard Fortunato (9H1ES) with a good signal and audio: max. S8!
Only with a slow fading and a little 'up' ssb from the USA.

I called, but I suppose... 25 Watts is to low?
Fortunato 9H1ES were talking by Jean by phone I think.... hi, hi...
I heard no Jean F6AQK, only a weak carrier.
But carrier from him or weak Broadcast station?

Later I listen in our livingroom again to 40 mtrs.
Around 08.15 hour! in the morning...
And I heard in ssb F5GN from France on +/- 7187 on air in ssb.
He worked many stations from the USA: W5, W9, KD and more.
Plenty stations for him on air....
And I could receive the most in our livingroom!
So I think this morning very good conditions on 40 mtrs...
But..but.... I heard NO AM station from the usa.

Hello AM Lovers,

This (First Easter) morning the same story...
Fortunato on 7185 khz only to receive, no Jean on 7185 in AM.
But poor conditions, 9H1ES only S3 by me.

Evenso I listen between 06 - 06.20 (our time!) to +/- 7215 & +/- 7225. Smiley
Some moments I thought 'I hear AM around 7220 khz!'
I listen very good, but I could not understand...
Maybe a BC station or... or AM from the USA?
If yes, who?

AM lovers on 40,

You know I monitor early mornings above 7200 khz.
And I thought 7220 khz is free before 06.30 hour by me: but NO!
During last weekend a BC starting much earlier on 7220 khz!

So during the weekend 7220 khz is not free/clean.... Cry

There is a little place (freq.) free, just around 7227 khz.

I keep my 'eyes & ears' around that freq. for you... Wink
