Ive yet to hear the EP on 160.
And there seems to be a big difference between east coast and mid-west circuits to EU even though I am only about 500 miles due west from Philly.
Often hear loud 1's, 2's, 3's, 4's calling somebody but not hearing who theyre calling.
Oh, I can't hear the EP, but I've been listening to the EU pileup for EP!
Yes, I often hear loud stations from all over North America, working DX I cannot hear.
I'm told there was a very nice opening to JA from eastern US in CQ 160 CW, but I did not hear any of the JA's myself.
One N7 claims to have worked 136 JA's. 136 JA's!!! On topband!!! The mind boggles!!! At same time 137 EU's from my QTH seems entirely possible in good conitions so maybe not so unusual.
