Every now and then some one will ask me WHY do I talk on SSB only , you can talk on AM or even FM now .I think the best example of why SSB and not the others is to tell you of my last contact today . 3/7/22 monday and it,s busy on 11 meters every one,s talking to some one and I have made a cotact to on -- 555 so we move to --480 . we start talking about radio and antennas and all of a sudden we have 1- 2- 3 radio operators talking over us . So I weight and I tell them the frequency is now in use . You know what they said , they apologized and moved off to make contacts elsewhere and that,s why I talk on SSB and not on the others....You all have a nice day.

    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.

    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:
