There is plenty of DX to work on the air. You are just limited by the band you are using.
Yeah I suppose your probably right but I don't have 11 meter perfected yet and money is too tight to expand into Ham yet. But the Idea does cross my mind. As soon as I get my house renovations complete there will be more money and time to go around if I don't kick thee old bucket first. LOL

Second hand ham rigs are cheaper than bling bling CB's.

I've thought of starting small and getting a President Lincoln 2+ and unlocking 11 meter but still be able to listen to 10 & 12 meter to see what it's about. Sounds like a good winter project. Thanks for the interest !

10 & 12 are the last two HF Bands to open.If you can listen to 17 & 20 you will hear lots of DX from around the world every single day & usually a lot of it.It's also not difficult to work them if you have 100 watts & a wire antenna.It's much easier for me becuase I run a Kilowatt or more with a (5) Band yagi at 50' so if I call them I work them.

    There will be NO FT8 robots running unattended at Bouvet,:ROFLMAO:

    10M BAND.....>28400 SSB .... Always give your full callsign. Listening is the key so be sure we call you before replying. 3Y0J will always listen up (using split) so it will be useless to call us on our transmission frequency.
  • @ BJ radionut:
    I like these guys already. :cool: Sounds to me like ROBO callers in ANY Mode will be ignored!!!!(y)

    3Y0J: Update January 29, 2023: Ken estimates Marama should arrive at Bouvet on Monday evening just before sunset. He says he anticipates a good weather window for at least two days then. The team will attempt to move the equipment and supplies onto the island using the zodiac then. They have two zodiacs. They are hoping to accomplish it in those two days. :cool:
