I guess the only saving grace here is that I wouldn't be selecting such a
spot in a any contest (having seen where KC7V is listening). You're
absolutely right, however, if I did I'd be out of the band.
You raised a very important observation, however, in a personal e-mail that I
want to share with the reflector.
Ross noted that depending on the BAND MAP CUTOFF FREQUENCY, the mode may be
set incorrectly for splits. For Phone contests set BAND MAP SPLIT MODE =
PHONE and to CW for CW contests. Otherwise you may find incorrect mode
settings on the split. Note: This is for the FT-1000MP and may or may not
apply to other rigs.
Thanks to Ross, KK1L, for this important observation.
