Hello Bill,

you are right. I was in Liechtenstein (HB0) for holiday 2 weeks ago. The
only antenna I took with me was a vertical for the WARC bands (10.1, 18.1
and 24.9 MHz). I made about 450 QSOs in 5 days, 400 of them in RTTY. And I
was very glad that a lot of this RTTY QSOs were with U.S. stations on 30m
and 17 m in the time between about 20:00 Z till about 22:00 Z. But there
were times when I had to call more than 10 or 15 minutes CQ before a station

I think it is a good idea to call very often CQ on this bands. And if you
find a station then spot it, that would be the most important matter.

While 160m RTTY is certainly interesting, the band that needs more
RTTY activity is 30m!

I got on last night around 10.138 MHz and had a nice QSO with N3WT.
Called a few more CQs, but had no other takers. N3WT remarked that he
rarely hears any RTTY on 30m, and barely anything else but packet or
PACTOR forwarding stations.

30m is a great band, and we ought to use it more. CW is at the bottom
of the band, so there's a lot of room for digital modes. I'm going to
make it a practice to call CQ somewhere in 10.138-140 each time I get
on the radio. Listen up for me, or call CQ yourself.
