    Hi all:

    I write from Spain. Let´s see, i got a SSB radio and usually do work with stations in Europe, but i´d be interested in knowing ( if somebody is so kind) any US station and its HF frecuency for calling in the range from 4000-15000 Khz and testing my radio in long distance to west ( i did with Australia yesterday).

    Does anybody help me?

    Cheers
