Lane, Typically below 1.820.  I usually hang out around 1.815.  Top Band will become much more active as we move into colder weather with lower static levels.  Hope to work you some time.  -Joe KB3KJS

Yup, below 1.820 is where the ragchews are. It's a wonderful band.

It seems that top band CW is dominated by DXers and some of that activity has migrated below 1820 kHz. I find ragchewing in the bottom 10 kHz of the band.

The digital watering hole is at about 1837.  There is also a small amount of PSK activity near 1807.
