Im getting some activity here on the east coast now as propagation improves and evening has settled in. Hearing radio checks to a net control station with foreign accents all in English at about S-3 on my 40' long wire.

Just stumbled on this freq and heard an EAM in progress, ended with "This is Seychelles out."

Is the ~ch~ pronounced like a k ?

I've always heard it pronounced "say-shell" but knowing the military -- they wouldn't like that. So the K would make sense.

Another example: Quebec is always "K-beck" to the military.
