" We have very limited spectrum with
thousands of stations trying to squeeze into it. "
Not seriously taking part in the contest it was interesting to tune across the
band with a 60. Hz band width filter and hear hundreds of Usa stations. Apart
from five stations with a mixture of very bad clicks. some +/- five Khz and
phase noise. Who made no attemt to reduce / clean up there signal. It was
possible to hear Asia / Usa within 300 Hz of some very strong stations. If the
stations that put up spots like .Deaf, no Rx were to actually zero beat there
signal to the person they were trying to work there Qso count would increase.
It was interesting to hear stations getting frustrated because they could not
be heard, some being as much as 1000Hz away from the station they were trying
to work . Ive not got a problem with the thousands of stations trying to
squeeze into it. just the few that know they have a bad signal but make no
attemt to Sort It.
