    What are the allotted calling frequencies for SSB on 10 meters?

    Except for the QRP SSB calling frequency of 28.385 (in the ARRL's considerate operators band plan) there are no "allotted SSB calling frequencies" on 10 meters. If I were going to call however it would be between 28300 and 28500 since that is where the largest number of licensees can operate

    Last sunspot minimum, 28.400 plus or minus was sort of a de-facto calling frequency, although it's not "alloted" by anyone.

    28.400 is often used a lot as an unofficial call frequency. 28.495 is used a lot by VK hams, too (in my experience).

    Ever since Novice Class / Technician Class operators got SSB privileges on the 10-meter band, the defacto SSB calling frequency has been 28.400 MHz USB. Most operators who monitor the band tune to this frequency.

    Even if you think the band is dead, go ahead and call CQ on 28.400 MHz a few times. Very often, the band is actually open but no one is transmitting. Therefore, there are no signals to be received and the band opening goes unnoticed.

    I monitor 28.337 and 28.400 concurrently. The former is where a lot of NEOH hams hang out, and you're almost guaranteed a response if you throw out a CQ there. Assuming the band's up or you're traveling through the area, of course. ;)

    What's a "NEOH ham" ?

    Never mind. Must mean NorthEastern OHio ham. I thought it was some kind of club, or maybe just a new way of saying new ham.

    If you answer that Seeeeeeeee cue you'd better have a 10-10 number or else!
