I understand that 7220 is clear sometimes but 7220 is not a normal place for AM activity and we cannot talk to Europeans on that frequency.
As KB2WIG said, can you try 10 meters or 20 meters ?
I spoke with Henk, PE2HHN on 29.000 AM a couple of days ago. I also spoke with a German and French station the same day.

Sam,
First I thought: 'What time we can hear AM from the USA on 40 mtrs?'
Therefore my 'advance' to use 7220 khz, because 7290 is certain not a good freq....
I have heard unfortunately a few AM stations from the USA on 7220.
Maybe, just after 6 o'clock (by me!), isn't a good time.
But, pity!, often on the hole 40 mtrs band: contests (mostly in the weekend).

Fortunately between 7220 - 7225 NO Europeancontests....
So I can listen evenso during the weekend around 7220.....

Later when we have found the best time to receive AM on 40 mtrs...
We can look for a good AM freq. below 7200 khz for Europa & USA. Smiley

Greetings,

Henk / pe1mph

Hi Henk,

When was the last time you had a QSO with a US or Canadian station on 40 meters ?

I've worked Henk several times on 80 meters, so 40 meters should be easier. It can be done since several AMers have worked Jean - F6AQK and others EU AM stations.

Nothing wrong with trying on 10 meters, but this is amateur radio where the challenge is part of the fun. If I wanted Henk 59, I'd just call him on the phone.  Wink

A couple of years ago I worked an Italian station on 7160.  He was  running slopbucket, but when I made him aware I was  running AM, he switched his ricebox to AM, running about 20 watts.  It was prefect copy, and we had about a 20 minute AM-to-AM transatlantic QSO. That wasn't the only transatlantic AM QSO I had.  It worked extremely well; we shouldn't have to operate split 7225/<7200. I'm afraid too many AMers are afraid of being chastised by slopbucketeers for operating "wide" AM signals in the DXers' self-proclaimed exclusive territory, so they tuck their tails and dodge broadcasters above 7200.

I agree completely that challenge = fun.

And working Henk on 40 meters would be alot of fun.    Wink

Find a spot below 7200 where we all can legally transmit on the same frequency.

That can be a good idea! Smiley
But, see above, often ssb and contesters on 40 mtrs.
We (F6AQK, 9H1ES, PE1BIW and me) trying around 7185 khz.
Mostly Sundaymorings, but...
Often ssb or contesters blowing all away....

I remember once I heard Brent W1IA around 7160 khz.
Once I heard him in the late evening (by me).
And Ken W2DTC around 7160, once early in the morning (by me).
