7.055MHz LSB Indonesian pile ups.
« on: February 05, 2020, 1647 UTC »
Just about every night (Australian time) between 1000z & 1600z there are literally hundreds of Indonesian stations in a seemingly endless pile up of calling on 7.055MHz LSB.

Not so long back I remember ORARI Daerah Bali provincial net used to operate on this frequency, it was a good place to pick up stations if you are chasing the worked all Indonesian provinces award. 

Also good for picking up the many Indonesian IOTA stations too.

Not to be confused with the infamous "chanters" from Indonesian village radio, these are radio amateurs and you can hear various YB, YC prefixes etc.

Yaesu FT-1000D, Yaesu FT-2000D, ICOM IC-736 HF/50MHz, ICOM IC R75 & Tecsun S-2000 to 450 feet of wire, 27MHz 1/2 wave CB antenna converted to 21MHz & a multi band vertical of dubious reliability.

When prop was better I used to hear some of these guys in the morning (West coast US time)... a few Malaysians, too.

Not recently, though.

Good thing too, they're almost as bad as the Canadians running ssb in the digital/cw portion of the band.
