Good Morning:

This is Brian, KD6NRP in southern California. I have a modest, but effective 160-meter capability that allows me to work CW stations in western North America (sometimes beyond).

If you would like to work me on topband, I often monitor 1808.0 KHz after my sunset or before my sunrise.

If you would like to schedule a QSO, please e-mail me at kd6nrp@earthlink.net.

Id be glad to work you. Just dont expect me to blaze along at high speed. I only do about 10 to 12 wpm.

Brian,

although 160 sounds quiet call CQ and see what happens. I do this and often get a QSO going quickly.

I'll listen on 1808 kHz this week and call some CQs. Maybe I'll contact you and K9FON.

If I'm sending CQ too fast send QRS, or come back at a comfortable speed. I'll match your speed.

I'm running 1 kW to a tiny inverted-L (20 x 20 feet is tiny).

I finally got a decent HF rig to use on 160 to 10. My other rigs dont cover the warc bands and 160 (old Drake Tr-4 and Tempo One) so now i can get active on 160 again, yay!
Im not the best fist but i try.
