Hello AM Lovers,
Some days ago I got an email from an AM lover (usa).
He asked me about good/free freq. on 40 mtrs.
Some bc stations aren't anymore on air, I mean between 7200 - 7300 khz.
During some days I monitoring between 7200 - 7300 khz.
Mornings between +/- 06.15 - 06.50 hours our time.
There is part of the 40 mtr band free/clean between 7230 - 7240 khz.
During the next days/weeks I will monitoring again on 40 mtrs.
Sorry, but lower then 7200 often many ssb stations calling to the usa.
And when they hear someone, many stations at the same time calling...
And! the freq. 7290 khz isn't a good freq., we cann't hear AM on that freq. Cry
Because on 7295 khz is a very strong bc station, who blowing all away...
Sorry, we in Europa may not transmit beween 7200 - 7300 khz.
But I (we!) can try to receive AM from the usa....
Can you tell me: between 7200 - 7300; is there some AM activities by you?

Greetings,

If I've got your time zone right you're talking:

0500 GMT

or 1 am EDT

There should still be some people awake in this region.

I know I sometimes get stuck in the idea 40 meters is a "daytime" band; right now at 11am EDT I'm listing to some real strong signals from Joe WA3WMI and Frank, K3SQP, but they are both within a few hundred miles of the receiver.

Yet, I've had real good results at night, right about this time of year, and a bit earlier than when you propose listening, but with contacts a lot farther out. 7160Kc

Here's  a YouTube from a while back at night.

Maybe some people who are awake at that hour can post something in the frequency range where you can listen.  It might also help to use a remote receive site -- there's one in Dokkum -- on the globaltuners.com website that could be used to verify whether you potentially could hear us across the Atlantic.

Hello,
Thanks for you reaction on this Topic.
Yes by me 06.50 in the morning = 05.30 (London) GMT time:
http://www.waar-ligt.com/tijdzones-groot.gif

Yes I know about 7160 khz for AM, but often ssb in Europe.
Therefore I thought... maybe I can hear AM somewhere between 7200 - 7300 khz.
And last days it look likes between 7230 - 7240 khz is free/clean from bc stations.
Perhaps there are already AM rounds?..... to try! to hear AM from the usa on 40 meters.
Or in the usa is AM on another freq. but not on 7290!
Thats not possible for us europeans to hear there AM.....

No answer Steve....
I shall monitoring next days between 7230 - 7240 khz.
Maybe an AM station operator say: 'Hello Henk......'!

Good AM DX, Smiley
