    I could (barely) hear you and Bob (N6OPR) the other day talking about this

    ...I assume you are refering to that net idea.

    I'll make a point of listening there Sunday

    You guys can try it but 10M is a terrible choice as a place to conduct nets. Propagation there runs too long. There will be too many who will never be able to hear each other.

    ......could be why you don't see any other groups holding nets on 10

    If the idea is just to accommodate Techs.....geesh the General test is easier and shorter than the Tech is. Why dontcha upgrade?

    Anyway, good luck

    Yeah and most or all of those nets are for LOCAL groups. Folks who can hear each other direct. Not DX nets.

    This group here is country-wide and will depend on propagation to work each other

    "country wide" does not make it DX. 10 meters IS a worldwide HF band.

    bob N6OPR is in calif, N0ZNA is in St Louis, I'm in florida,

    I guess we we are all local.

    Don't argue with me boy [​IMG] I've been doing this since before you were born [​IMG]

    Propagation typically runs long on 10 meters. East coasters working west coasters & visa versa. Someone in the middle of the country won't hear either coast.

    Round Table / Check-In Nets are only any good if most or all participants can hear each other.

    That's 40 and 80 meters are filled with nets because of big-circle closer-in propagation and the use of higher-angle radiation antennas so there is significant occurrence of straight up and straight down signals. Everyone with several hundred miles can hear each other....as far out as the band is running at that moment.

    That's doesn't work on the higher bands.

    No run along and upgrade to General before we send you to the spanking line [​IMG]

    I tend to agree with the Weasel here. Even when I was new and hot for 10 meters even during a sunspot cycle I never heard any 10m nets. Ocassionally may the 10-10 bunch but that's about it.

    I found more local 10m nets. I used to check into some of the 40 meter nets but would always drop out after an hour waiting for my turn.

    But, get in there and call a 10m net if it floats your boat. :D I'll listen in to see if I can hear anyone.

    Im down, i skimmed the thread, if its 10m i can promise ill be lucky if i hear past FL, 40m is much better for me. even 80. 10 is open for me once in a blue moon.
