I think what Steve is pointing out is that there are too many stations ONLY using FT8 and everyone is missing out on contacts when this happens. There are people who are not on digital for various re

I had the same issue in January with a VE3. I emailed with him suggested he switch to CM and he explained that he wasn't using WSJT-X and won't until they fix it because it doesn't work on his PC (In

If you got rid of the two signal rule you would actually reduce the activity. If there is a rule change I would support the idea of being able to work a station twice. Once on digital and once on CW

I'm a little confused by that statement. When I got a novice license in the early 80's we started with HF, it wasn't until I passed the tech exam that I got VHF privileges. Now everyone starts with t

No offence but It's obvious that this proposal is coming from a group of long time VHF contesters. The issue I see with this proposal is that you heavily reward the individuals/groups that have been

This brings up a point I was trying to make on the 220 group. It would be nice if we had one national frequency everyone was using for FT8 on bands above 2m. .174 is pretty common in the northeast an

I understand what you're saying and I agree when you are already on 2m or 6m and make a contact but outside of that if I want to just monitor on 220 or call CQ where do I call? I can call on .174 for

Alex, I think you are unknowingly highlighting one of the largest complaints. There is no easy way to get people to move up the bands. When we make contact on voice, before we are done I ask for othe

Sadly, if we don't resolve the FT8 issue I'm not sure the rover count will stay up either. I just bought a few amplifiers from a guy who's only been roving for a few years. I asked why he was giving

I'm pretty sure we had both linear and switching, it's been a few years. We got another generator out and the issue was gone so we know the source. Dave N2OA _________________________________________
