So far I have remained silent on this topic, although I do have a very
strong view, as follows.
I can understand the need for SSB operators to 'leak' downwards into the
CW exclusive part of the band during a contest. I would even say take
over two thirds of the CW only segment and come down as far as 1823.
But please leaves us the bottom 10 kHz to use. Anything else is just
plain disrespectful and rude.
Over the weekend, I was trying to keep my nightly CW sked with G
stations. We decided to try 1811, but after a couple of minutes it was
taken over by some US SSB contester, and we had to give up. I stayed
QRT for the rest of the weekend.
73, Greg, ZL3IX
