      I regularly use JT65 and occasionally JT9 on 160, just above 1838KHz. I
      normally use 30w but occasionally up to 100w to a low inverted L.

      In recent winter months I have worked down into most (16)eastern states as
      far as LA with my low power and bit of wet string, usually between 0200 and

      Band's a bit quiet now that summer is aproaching. Haven't heard anything
      much since February.
