Jeremy NQ0M has been trying valiantly
to get a Monday night 1930 an 2030 SSB net on
7.285. I've been able to hear some folks but I
haven't been copied. My experience is that QRP SSB
is the most difficult mode.
Being a stubborn old fart, I wanted to see if
you all would like to try an additional SSB
possiblity. What about just asking everyone who
wants to work SSB to just give a listen for a few
minutes every weekday night at 2000 CDT? Not to
be a big deal, but give a quick listen to see if
you can copy anyone. I guess 7.285 is good but if
nothing is heard after a few minutes, I'm going to
try 275 and 295...less than 10 minutes total
unless I get some QSO's. I know I won't be able
to do this every night, but if enough of us are
giving it a try, we ought to get some QSO's. If
this is not good for you all, I guess it didn't
hurt to try suggest the idea.
If you do this, don't hesitate to call CQ QRP
and report any activity on QRPSpots.
Anyone who has another idea, please post. My
first priorrity was CW, next is SSB, and I hope to
get on PSK 31 very soon...have the hardware but
have not figured it out in terms of hook-up. I
have a Signalinkand will be looking at various
info sources...I don't think it will be that
hard. I have Digipan loaded and have monitored
20M with it.
