I did JT65 on 160, but really what´s the challenge?

Is amazing when you did a CW qso, switching between RX antennas, filters
and radio adjustments to pull out a callsign

I don´t know what people than been on topband for decades feel about that



Is not a question of 'challenge', it's a question of being able to operate on 160, with a station that won't cut even on CW. The same applies to VHF/UHF when it comes to JT modes.

Let's not forget also that many aspiring topbanders do not operate on CW -not trying to create a CW yes/no thread - and CW, before the JT modes, was the best mode for topband.

And finally, people with hearing problems.
