    For the past 7 years of being a Amateur Radio/Ham operator I really enjoyed using the digital mode like D-Star, NXDN & Mototrbo and at times on Analog FM repeaters if there's usage on them. What all analog/digital or etc you guys and ladies use and like?

    For 35 years, CW - 99.999%

    But I have to be honest and say that in the last 6 months, I've found I actually like SSB!!! And RTTY & SSTV
    as well.... although I don't QSO much on those modes just yet - I did have fun on the RTTY contest this last
    weekend.

    Gotta say - I'm expanding my view outside of CW - to me, that was the "essence" of ham radio since
    I was a teenager in the 70s. I used to flirt with a girl when I was 16 on CW for up to FOUR HOURS every day after
    school, on 40m CW (she was a local to Seattle area so on ground wave)... that was our "texting".
    I even remember her call - WB7AIX - I don't think we ever met in person.

    So now... favorite mode? Gotta say SSB ragchews... never thought I'd say that!

    6. And yes, it's "pretty dead" there but that's what some of us are trying to change :)

    JT65 has worked wonders for me in my new QTH, an apartment with an indoor antenna where I have to use QRP. Before, at my old QTH, I used to usually use PSK31, RTTY, and a tiny little bit of SSB and CW. I use D-STAR and analog FM only when mobile. I'd like to get into other digital modes like P25 and MOTOTRBO. If I had the antenna for it, I'd love to get back onto 6 m with any mode at all - I'd like to try AM there.

    I looked in my log and yes we have worked each other on JT65 20m back in September. Good to see another Apartment dweller taking advantage of JT65. I got my WAS Mixed and Digital using electric fence line strung up around my ceiling and well on my way to DXCC using JT65. I also really enjoyed the RTTY Round Up this past weekend eventhough I only made 81 contacts with only 7 of those DX. SSB hasn't worked out too well for me in the apartment but I take the FT-897, a battery in a bucket and a Buddipole out to the local park from time to time. Started learning CW recently but haven't had a QSO with anyone yet...but I'm a trying.

    JT65 is one of my favorites, but only when used for making contacts 480,000 miles away from me.

    ...Some people might call that DX.
