VK Band limits on 75M SSB are from 3774 -3800 KHz

Look for the stations above 3780 and below 3796

There will be plenty of VK in there specially around greyline.

Hope that helps - will be on air as VK4KW

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Very basic question on 80M for upcoming CQWW SSB

I was licensed in 1953,easily  have DXCC on each band above 80M, but have never made a DX QSO on 75M SSB.  So want to play in the upcoming contest.  Looks like a dipole will get me about 80 KHz of usable SWR without running out to the antenna to retune in the middle of the night.  So where do I want to be to be able to work EU, VK, JA, etc, simplex and not be in the big boy's domain?  My station is typically better than the operator!  Sorry for the newbie question.  Thanks,  N0UU
