    Dave for the win.

    I suspect this is true for a lot of the bands. All the talk of gloom and doom about propagation keeps people from keying up. You may have to call for a little while.

    And if all else fails, there is a vast network of beacons located on 27.385 lsb. If there's the slightest shred of an opening, those guys are on it like a duck on a june bug.

    Lots of contacts on 10M during the contest this weekend ! Contests - where REAL hams hang out.

    Isn't it amazing how that works out? I wasn't anywhere near a radio this weekend, but heard from a friend that it was a nice 10m opening.

    Shame the bands are dead. :p

    The experts say get a years experience first. I am NOT an expert, but I do agree that a little experience makes a better operator. A lot of new hams today have years of CB experience under their belt, but, that is not the kind of experience they need. 73 John

    I am aware of this, and I find their claim of "Expert" status dubious at best.

    And, yeah, experience makes for better operators no matter what band your on.

    As someone else pointed out in that thread about experience, the basics of courtesy, consideration, respect, patience, and general niceness are not really on the test, and that most of the annoying operators on HF are old timers.

    I'm confused... Was that before or after he invented Global Warming?

    Sage advice. Extremely GOOD advice. Write what Dave said down and reread it every couple of hours !!!
