Propagation Prediction on-line                                     


Table Frequencies:

I will almost always operating “split”, in other words listening a few kHz away from where we are transmitting so everyone can still hear me no matter how many callers are calling.   I will occasionally tell you exactly where to transmit by saying something specific like “listening up five” or “listening two-fifty“ but most of the time we will just say “up” or “down” (“dn” on CW) as a clue to where you should tune your TX.

PS  We sometimes make mistakes too and shift the wrong VFO - sorry, we’re only human.

By maintaining a consistent rhythm, i hope to avoid encouraging other callers to call while a QSO is still in progress.  I will simply ignore tail-enders and, if they are really rude, we may blacklist blind callers, at least for a while. If i hear someone we have just worked immediately calling again, i  will repeat their call and say something like “QSL” or “You’re in the log” to confirm and complete the QSO.  If i made a mistake in the log, we will correct it and confirm on air.  We may just ignore callers making duplicate calls on different occa

I will also be listening more than I transmit.  We will use our filters etc. to the best effect and will make a special effort to pick out weak callers, whether DX or QRPers or Mobiles  (ideally both!)

We may repeat just a few characters of a call if we cannot resolve the complete call.  This means we are listening to someone specific and will persist until we get the complete call.  If we made a genuine mistake and nobody returns to our first or second offer, we will say something like “No copy, QRZ” or “NIL” on CW but please be patient until that point.

MHZ / Typical Operating Frequencies  

  • Let us know your necessities about Bands and Modes. send us your request Will try to give you more than one band and mode.

    See you during our Adventure

  • Please kindly if you ear  or work us, spot on the cluster to others. I will look out especially for well modulated signals, even the weak ones, and will make sure our own signal is clean.

  • We give special attention to QRPs , SWL , NOVICE and Mobile Stations

  • Please NO DUPES QSO's , give the chance to others! If you work us already, please don't call again at least on different mode.

  • If propagation opens up for DX QSOs, I may start calling specific areas or continents but only for a while, Ie promise.  I'm  conscient of the short greyline openings to North America  and Asia, and will be looking for long path as well as short path openings when the time is right.  If I work some juicy DX in a run of ordinary QSOs, I may put the pileup on hold and call for more DX to take advantage of the opportunity.  Be patient with me: I like working DX too!
