I don't see the need for alarm as SSB is already quite prevalent above
7040 kHz and has been for years. Most of it that we hear on 40m comes
from this hemisphere and we've learned to deal with it.

In my humble opinion, it is well past time that we in the US drop this
Incentive Licensing based band regulations. We are not in harmony with
the way the rest of the world uses the bands any more. Shoot! we here
in the US do not use about 35 to 40 kHz of prime 20m spectrum due to our
assinine band regulations that no one sees fit to change! I really do
think that the artificial limits on phone operation and digital
operations do not serve us well today and have outlived their
usefulness. I know a lot of people won't like my opinion. But it's
past time that we, the operators on the air, should determine how best
to accomodate our operations and not arbitrary regulations.

Somehow we all seem to coexist on 160m which should be a model for the
rest of our bands.

I think it is important to focus on those who will actually be involved in the decision making: the FCC, ARRL, and IARU.  Whether you like the President or not, he will probably not weigh in on this issue one way or another.

And, on a more QRP note, I just received an HB-1B from Ten Tec to play with… maybe I'll get a chance tonight.

We had a good net, with 5 checkins and we kept the freq busy for 45 in. with checkins from NJ, Mo, Ca, Wa, and MN, and NCS in Wy. Nice group, with temps of 40 - 60, but no snow, just rain in Ca.

AD7BP was hit hard with the QSB today, maybe Thurs will better for all.
with a bit of snow forecast, my antenna will likely have to wait another few days.
 
 
May the Props be EVER in Our Favor!!

Have a great day,

Yea I know about the windows. Sometimes I push #28 magnet wire out thriu the

think. Good luck, you should have some success on the 12 the 12th floor Spot

Yeah.  I couldn't tell if he had someone checking in with him or not.  I had been listening for a while and I could tell that the freq was in use, but that's about it, so I was doing other stuff.  When I heard him ask for QNI, it almost startled me! hi!

The Four State QRP Comfortable nets meet each Wednesday night
beginning at 7:00 PM CST, 0100z.

I'll be antenna challenged tonight and won't be able to make the 80M nets. Pse
someone jump in, call the net and have some fun.

If we have to QSY, I like to move up, Wayne likes to move down,
and Dick doesn't have to move much at all.

Add anything to the exchange that you wish, temp rig, ant, etc.
Checking into both, or even all, sessions is encouraged.
Who will be the first to check into all of them?

7:00 CST 0100z ... 80M CW Net on 3564, WA�ITP NCS.
7:30 CST 0130z ... 40M CW Net on 7122, KC�PMH NCS
8:00 CST 0200z ... 80M CW Net on 3564, WA�ITP NCS.

9:00 CST 0300z ... 80M PSK Net on 3580.5, N�TGR NCS

All are welcome! After the nets, a list of checkins will be
