Greetings to all on the list.  I would be very interested to hear anybody's
comments about operating on TopBand during the forthcoming CQ-WW  SSB and CW
contests.  I am especially interested in best times, freqs, and general
tips.


Good luck,  Tim Makins,  EI8IC

Had a great time working 160M from Dominica as J75KG last year.  We were able to make EU QSOs even after European sunrise, and continued to work into the states until after our sunrise.  We seemed successful with the gray line paths, but also from midnight to 2 AM local time.  I think it helps to keep a receiver there to monitor the noise level and look for new multipliers all the time between sunset and sunrise.  It is a band full of surprises.
