I use split on 40 meters. That was before the new band plan and continue to do so today. Definite reduction of QRM in the US band.

Hi Jim,

The original post was regarding the Colonies event and asked for ways for inexperienced operators to handle that pileup - Not a contest

That is why split was suggested

Split operation is fine for a DXpedition, but NEVER in a contest. It is
incredibly selfish. I won't work anyone who is working split in a
contest. Indeed, doing so should be grounds for DQ.
