    Excellent afternoon, do you normally QSY from 555? Or do you just check the zeros?

    Yes, usually a QSY from t5. I generally call and ask for QSY before I get a response, or am following someone else’s.

    Ok so the procedure to QSY is to go straight to the QSY frequency as soon as you request and unkey?

    Pretty much. Most operators will call CQ DX, please QSY.... without making a contact at all.

    It helps, however, to listen on t5 for a couple seconds in case some didn’t catch the QSY freq.

    Then on the other freq, just repeat the call and listen. I’ve called three times and only on the third have someone hit me back at S9. So I’ll almost always try 3 times before going back to T5 and starting over.

    I'd be packing my own lunch. Much safer. Consider that you are in an area with high "INFECTION ". Condensed population. Might as well be licking public toilet seats.

    No...were not there yet and hope we don’t get there. Infection is not high considering we are a county of 10 million. Business are just taking precautions. We don’t want to be lax and it explodes. Besides you cant find chicken anywhere!! LOL People freaked out and cleaned out the markets. There is plenty of food. If people just went to the market as usual it would be fine.

    I had 14 Div copy me yesterday afternoon, but no QSO. West Indies and Caribbean were booming in here.

    1 Div is hearing low chatter on 27025.

    Possible it might open up...
