operators outside North America to be reminded to stay clear of 1820 and 1830
if they  wish  to be  heard  in North  America.  These two  frequencies  have
harmonics that make it almost impossible to copy weak signal DX. DX  stations
can listen on  1820 and 1830,  if it  is clear,  but please  do not  transmit
