That I will agree with 100%
The bands are DEAD. the only time they even sound like when I first got
licensed ( 1975 ) is during a contest.
20 meters on a Saturday afternoon back then, it was extremely rare to
have a contact where there wasnt a high pitched donal duck above you
and a grumble grumble below you all the time. geez now it's all private
channels like on 2 meters for cripes sake.
