    I see some PSK31 activity on 10 and some of the beacons are starting to work from the west coast to east.

    I'll try on phone on .455 for a bit to see if it's working...

    Winning.... How long do I have to keep this up? lol 28.455

    Question, does the same call sign (already logged on 10M) count as a second contact if made on 6M, is it one call sign per contact ?

    LOL, no 1 point per member contacted regardless of mode/band.

    That's gives me an idea for the next contest, though...
