    I just worked a "/M" in SoCal from Fl on .455, only signal strong enuf to work. there are other signals on.455, but so weak i can barely hear them.

    there are many stations just 5Kc down the band:confused:

    I noticed that over the weekend. I can picture 10,000 hams all listening to 10 meters, not one calling CQ and all thinking the band is dead.

    At the same time on 38LSB 10,000 CB'ers are all talking at the same time because the band really is open.
