Default 10 Meter


Looking to make my first HF Contact on 10m 28.38 9-11 am EST or 5-10 pm.

Not sure if the band will even be open, but I'll keep trying...

Listen on 28.400. If the band opens up, somebody will usually be on. If you make contact, try to remember to move to another frequency, thus leaving the calling freq open for others to use.

When you are not doing anything guys..download fldigi/flarq...flarq is a beacon sent out with call letters...they use it for nbems emcomm tfc some clubs...anyhow put that on 10 meters and if another member hears it you can connect directly to it for station to station qso ...we have made a few contacts with it....

DOCTOR/795...

anyone can start a website and put out MIS-information.

this idea seems to have been fabricated by some people that have an HF SSB operating range of 28.300 - 28.500 and think that 28.400 (right in the middle of their band) is an INTERNATIONAL calling freq. it's not.

the ONLY (world-wide) SSB 10 meter calling freq is 28.385 USB (QRP).
