SB QST ARL ARLB060
ARLB060 W1AW to shift 160-meter transmission frequency

Starting Monday, September 29, W1AW will shift its 160-meter code
practice and bulletin transmission frequency from 1818 kHz to 1817.5
kHz, starting with the 4 PM EDT (2000 UTC) code practice run.

The frequency shift not only brings W1AW's Top Band frequency in
line with those the station uses on other bands, it also should help
to eliminate possible interference from broadcast station harmonics
and birdies--something that's more likely on an integer (ie, whole
number) frequency.

W1AW has been conducting code practice and bulletin transmissions on
1818 kHz since 1982. Prior to that, W1AW transmitted both CW and
phone bulletins on 1835 kHz.
