Heard this morning

Hi all, many thanks for coming my blog.
Please hear all.
This morning here at 1923z, I began to hear that it is usual. It was heard from 160m after a long time this morning. The top band condition isnot enough, the noise level is still high.
However, One JA station call to DX station. but I am not hear where he is calling. I still hear his call freq.
How long did it pass.
The DX station signal going up. I can copy his CW code. The JA station still call with signal report. He send the report is 559. Really, he is very famous and he has wonderful sntenna system. However, he send report was 559. Maybe it will be difficult for me to copy the signal of DX.
After all, a call sign was not able to be copied. But The JA station send his call that it is very lucky. I understand whois on the air.
That DX stations call sign was A65BP. I am very pleased. I can not contact for him. however, I can heard the his signal. Maybe near future, I will be able to contact for him.
I will waiting for the good condition on 160m band.

A top band last evening

This week is summer holiday. Therefore, I hear the top band in both time zones of sunrise and sunset every day. The Northern Hemisphere is summer now and the Southern Hemisphere is winter now. When such, a north-south path is predicted to be good.
I show the DX cluster on internet at sunrise and sunset time. Sometimes show the DX spot from US. That spot was VK or ZL with comment. Maybe US station has good receiving antenna that there can detect of weak signal.Though regrettable, I do not have a receiving antenna system. Therefor, similarly I cannot hear it.
Yesterday, I hear the top band at sunset time. Already US station spot the VK station on 1824.6Khz. I hear the that. but I hear the noise only. I can not find it. Where is the VK station? I add the homebrew preselector for my rig. and adjustment receive freq.
How much was it heard? The signal has gone up little by little. Signal report was 319. It is very difficult copy his signal.
However, to the last, a signal did not become strong and it was not able to copy completely.

After a long time QSO on 160m

Hi all, thanks for coming my blog.
I came home today when I hear the top band.  Because as same time at 1000z when XV2JJ QRV on 160m yesterday. So I think today also XV2JJ will QRV on the top band.
But it is not QRV today. Unlucky.
However, I still hear the top band before dinner. I found the strong signal on the band. I think, JA station call to CQ DX I think so. But that was RT0F QRV on the band. He was QSO for the VK station. But here was not hear the VK signal. It only RT0F.
After few minutes, their QSO finish and RT0F send QRZ. Then I call to him one time. He return to my call that we start the QSO. I am very glad. because really after a long time QSO on 160m band. Everyday almost heard nly noise. but today I could hear the DX signal. So maybe the condition is change by slowly and littl.
This matter is of importance. I will have to hear the top band everyday.
