I worked YU7U on 80 meter with CW, pretty fast with 32 wpm. But with a little help from CWSkimmer no problem at all. With my own ears I check always if the decodes are right. Hi hi. With the winter season the higher bands are closing down early. That means that I go down to the lower bands. 40 meter is a nice band but very crowded. On 80 meter there is a lot of space available. Enough for CW, JT65 and PSK31. On 40 meter the JT65 frequency 7076 KHz is in the SSB section of the band. On 7039 KHz are a lot of strong CW beacons and other noise. 80 meter is a good alternative for low band operations. The problem for a lot of hams is the antenna space needed for lower bands. Vertical antennas are most of the time insufficient unless you put a lot of radials on ground level. An end fed antenna is possible but you need still 40 meters of length, and that is maybe not possible for a lot of us. I like to work on 160 meter too, but... no antenna for it. Maybe an EH antenna? But that antenna concept is questionable and maybe losses of -20dB.
