160 is killing me. I can hear the contesters but can't talk back. I can only get the antenna tuner to tune down to 1935 or so. I need to get more wire in the air as well.

I'll just have to settle for the RTTY contest going on today. Perhaps I'll get a little AM action as well. http://www.antiquewireless.org/otb/awanews.htm#AM-QSO

ECI, Thats what I had to do "Temporally"

Been on a 160 kick lately.....Not as many HAM SNOBS there.

75/80 at night is loaded with drunk ass, "I been here for 40 YEARS ON THIS CHANNEL" types

Screw that noise.

160 is cool

I listen in on 75/80 from time to time but so far nothing has interested me. I've done a little digital stuff there. PSK, RTTY for contesting but thatt's it. I have more fun up on 12m, 15m and 17m. Less of the snobbish DX that only wants to play in the extra class portion of the band.

Yep I hear ya, 75/80 main topic is about Earl's swollen feet due to chronic alcoholism,and how he has a hard time getting to the doctor.

Oh yeah the weather is 40 degrees and sunny...........

And could you move down a few kilocycles?Cuz Earl and I have been on this frequency since 1963.


Tobad they act like that there.


17 hey??

Cool

17 is an underused band. I check it out every afternoon after work. There is almost always some DX station calling CQ. CW on 17 tends to be the ragchew variety as well. I tortured some poor sould who was working CW mobile, with my sloppy fist on afternoon. So OM, how's your prostate?
