    ahh... he was alternating between two transmitters, so I probably got them mixed up. Thanks for clarifying.

    I'm just guessing (joking)! He was all over the place and fun to follow, as you mentioned. There were a few others on too but the broadcasters took over on 40 anyway. CRI took out 4 QSOs in one flick. They are on 7.285. If they were up 30kc, we'd be fine. :oops:

    CRI just disappeared at my station, if you want to check 40m again.

    We were mostly being regaled by his 1935 vintage 50T. He was switching stuff around through the day.

    Look up his call for more iron.

    Well I knew the hours wouldn't work well for me, and they didn't. I didn't even remotely get a chance to listen. Hope everyone had a great time.

    I had a fun, short time. A few QSOs in a few hours with some good listening in there for good measure. My station was working well. People heard it (I was surprised). I'm still running plastique, but it seems to be OK. There were a few carrier groups out there! Hollow state this summer. That'll be fun.

    Who or what is “CRI?”

    Oh, that annoying station right around 7.295?

    CRI is China Radio International. They bought two hours of airtime each day on a commercial station in Albania on 7285kc from 3-5pm Eastern.

    A real hassle for 40M AM enthusiasts. I become a refugee from the Asian Invasion each afternoon when they sign on, and they never ask if the frequency is in use. Imagine!
