Is there some special significance to 7.052 MHz for CW operators. I've noticed for the past couple of weeks while the Dxpedition on St. Brandon has been operating phone on 7.052 split to 7.228 that there seems to be a lot of CW signals, calling CQ on that frequency while adjacent frequencies seem devoid of CW signals. Seems to get especially busy around gray line for the west coast just as St. Brandon gets strong enough for us to hear.

Frequencies around 7.050 have been used for a few years (at least) by QRS operators -- I've called that region "the beginner's sandbox".

Didn't know that it was causing trouble with a DXpedition.

That's good to know. I need a good spot to practice my cw anyway. I'm sure there was no interference on purpose. They probably couldn't even hear them. I was just curious since there seemed to be so many ops in one place.

Thanks!

3B7C is gone, but still lots of CW around 7050. Not a bad place to start. I've heard some real slow CW.
