Thanks for the report. I just need to get a couple of things sorted out over
the next few days, and I'll be QRV for crossband 501/137 kHz. Won't be until
after Easter, though. Social engagements mean I won't be on the air much
until the week-end after Easter :-(
Not sure if QRSS or DFCW is the better mode for DX on 137 kHz. The fading
characteristics are quite different compared to 137 kHz. The QSB appears to
be quicker, maybe 2 minute cycle, and the fades can be quite deep.

Oh, wish I was at DK4U right now (for a xband test): Your signal is
"M".."O" copy with a piece of wire in my living room, connected to a
TS850 through a selective high-impedance preamplifier. And all that
despite a horrible amount of QRM.
19:45 UTC: just seeing the "WCB" on a SL QRSS3 screen.
