Speaking of band plans.... What about 40 meters too ?? I think I worked
some guys transmitting on SSB as low as 7005. I even heard some well
known EU stations call guys in the CARR who were listening up above
7150 and playing "dumb" about being out of the band. Seems like some
stations will do just about anything to make a QSO ???
