Re: 40 and 80 Meter Net Report

John - KK4ITX

Yes Dale, I am aware of the overlap in use and not placing blame but I often bring up the issue to perhaps get the 4S frequency moved to avoid the QRM.  I had my FT-450D filter at 300 and could still hear them at 7121 around an S4-5.  They were clearly centered on 7125 well within their rights, no problem here on that score..... but pretty wide.

There is often interference to deal with as I work 95+% QRP and that’s part of the game, usually when I can, I just quietly move away from it but that’s not an option when I am chasing a Net.

I figure that being just a handful of miles from the Gulf Coast makes it even more likely for me to have an issue, it’s not uncommon here.

John, some of the Central and South America countries have phone privileges in our CW sub-bands. Years ago I lived in Costa Rica and Honduras and I once had a cross mode SSB/CW contact with a stateside Novice. It was perfectly legal for both of us. So when a DX station crowds us at 7122 kHz, we need to remember that he/she may be complaining about how we're causing them QRM just like we complain about them. Who's wrong?  :-)
