In response to KJ4UNX's ? about 40 meter activity

Postby n4mj » Sat Nov 20, 2010 11:04 pm

Generals have privileges on 40 meters, and all other HF bands.

Techs have privileges on 40 and 15 meters but only by using CW. LOTS OF DX POSSIBILITIES!!!

40 meters is considered by many to be 'the' DX band, especially on CW.

SSB DX has improved in recent months on 40 meters. Until a few months ago there were many foreign broadcast stations in the amateur portion of 40 meters. That has now changed and only a very few are allowed to broadcast there these days. That makes SSB DXing on 40m a much more viable option.

Thanks Glenn. Yeah I seen where us techs have CW priv. on there. As a mater of fact I did listen to a guy last night on 40m that was very very slow. Which was good for me cause I could make out a few letters that we went over in the Boy Scout meetings.

It was funny listening to the CW last night. Some guys were very fast and ran everything together. Others were slower like the guy I mentioned earlier. Even the keys sounded differant from one another. Some had a lower pitch to them and some had a higher pitch to them. I will have to start studying again on the code so I can play around on there.
