Tonight annoying QRM from phone stations on 7050 KHz. I heard the splatter when I was making a qso with SIM31 on 7045 KHz. The origin seems to be from Ukraine or Russia.
17 meter was open in the afternoon. I heard stations from Brasil and Indonesia with JT65A. My HyEndFed is good for listening but inefficient for transmitting. So no QSO possible for DX.
