Hello seems we don't see a lot of QSO
on ten meters unless its a contest But
I get on a lot and I'm seeing far to many
unlicensed Mexican cb radios on. I feel that
we need to get some licensed nets going
on 28.4 and down maybe some one get
the hit that they're not welcome !

I doubt if an 'unwelcome' feeling will be felt by anyone. By all means start a net or two, but don't hold your breath.

No offence to anyone....but where I am 10 meters stays totally dead....I check several times a day from morning to evening when I am home to do so


You need a better antenna. :D Generally the further north you go the worse the higher bands are. 6m opens all the time in the south but rarely here except during the summer Es season. I am just running an 80m doublet with 450 ohm ladder line and a remote tuner and I don't spend much time of the radio and yet I find 10m is open fairly often. not great signals mind you but open often.

I like 10 meters, when I was tech it was working DX on 10 that pushed me to get my general ticket. Most of the time 10 is dead here but a month or so ago I was helping a friend who is a tech get on 10. We were working 28.400 and just chatting, there were no other signal as the band was quiet. When we signed a station in Europe came on and called me. I had no idea the band was open. We chatted for about 15 minutes and even my friend was able to work him. Moral? Sometime it helps just to call CQ.

Yep and the one that call cq all the time catch hell from others...look at 28.425usb


Time to bury that dead horse and stop beating it. :bdh: Get over the mess your buddy Todd got himself into. It was never about the time spent on any one freq. calling CQ. It was all about the sheer ignorance displayed by him when people answered his CQ and were deemed "not worthy" of a contact with him because of the lack of a stupid number. I honestly cannot see why you find that so hard to understand. Perhaps next time it can be typed out in crayon to make it easier for you.
