No split. If your tring to work DX you move down to 7040 simplex. If your not
interested in working US/VE/etc you operate the 7070-7085 area. I suspect
a number of the operators at 7070 don't understand why they don't work
Europe and Asia. As an aside, on 80M to work JA you need to be in the
3820-3825 window, while most of the RTTY is 3080-3620.
