The answer was immediate and obvious. He dropped down into the European
phone band and screamed at me on my receive frequency for 20 minutes until I
I hope it was in the PHONE band , i.e. above 7040 ! Some have a bad habit
of tuning below and making a mess in the CW band when the Eastern EU club
stations starts calling and covering 10 kHz with their splatters !
Fortunately, this is all academic for me. I don't know the phone, and on CW
the problem is minor at worst.
You can say that again. " Parrot" contests never really appealed to me
either, although I may jump in and give some of the guys a multiplier for an
hour or so. But never on 40 or 160 m ! Life is too short for that sort of
aggrevation ! hi
