Ham radio is primarily a hobby service. Depending on a hobby to save your life is rolling the dice, IMO. But I think you have hit an important point. The sailing community looks upon amateur radio as

Most of those who have ham radio on board are small vessels, where either the sailors are living on board or are hobbyists. Large commercial vessels don't generally rely on amateur radio (of course).

Strictly speaking, if you are even 0.0000000001 of a second past 2400z, you have already reached 0000z. This is why most digital clocks don't even bother to display 2400 and they just go to 0000. The

True, but look at it another way. If someone gives you a report other than "59" in a contest...say in CQWW he gives you a "41" but you log it as "59" anyway (we're all 59 in contests, right?) Because

Well, I don't think that's the problem. I've had stateside stations call me even when I call "CQ DX." Maybe they want to confirm the state or county, or simply just want to work me for some other rea

"Tons" of SWL cards is all relative. :) IOW, I don't expect that there are lots of SWLs anymore, so 5-10 cards per month is plenty! Ryan, N2RJ -- Ryan A. Jairam, _____________________________________
