Ever wonder what it would be like to listen from the West Coast? Do the Japanese and Pacific Islanders come blasting in like the Europeans do here? One way to find out: check out this link.

Here’s what I did: Check VOACAP online
for the best band between Nashua and Sacramento.
Go the that band and find a clear spot on the waterfall. Then fire up and Call CQ. Now you can hear yourself as received on the West Coast!

W6DRZ has about the best station on websdr. It is like a reverse beacon for SSB. If you can hear yourself you can work the CA Net at 7250 from 5:00 to 6:00 AM PDT. They are very friendly and seem to like working weak signals from the East coast.
At 6AM PDT Asian BC lights up the band from 7100 – 7300. We complain about 1 or 2 BC stations on 40m, they must have 10.
The “Gordon West” (CRC40) net is also at 7250 from 8:30 to 9 PDT. By then it is 11:30 AM in NH and beyond my reach.
If you read the notes for each websdr station you will find only a few have high gain antennas.
