Not at all unlike 50.125 on 6 meters.
Always a great 10m SSB beacon for me when I was living in Oregon.
I have talked to Todd 20+ times and when i tell him im QRP he gets mad.
I'm unfamiliar with this individual but the first thing that came to mind reading that was a quote from Monty Python: "what a strange person."
Not really a calling frequency, but back before the Internet, the 6-meter liaison frequency used to be 28.885 MHz. Anyone remember that?
Thats a really big "split".
Look up kc4tvz
He is special.
Indeed. That endlessly looping recorded CQ on 28.425 belongs in a horror movie or a nightmare.
He actually makes a great 10m beacon. And he WILL answer if he hears you. His wife as well. I have both of their QSL cards in fact, with contacts made by answering his automated CQ
Todd KC4VTZ is actually very prolific with almost 500,000 QRZ lookups and he's on that frequency pretty much all day, every day, and racks up contact after contact after contact (see his QRZ page and real-time log if you don't believe me - he's on the air right now racking up SSB contacts on 10m)
Beats the heck out of the guys that just gripe and moan how "the bands are dead" and never actually get on the radio - Todd, like him or not, gets on every single day and calls CQ and makes many dozens of contacts a day. I'd be willing to bet he's been the "First HF Contact for new Technicians" more than any other single ham
He was my first contact on 10M SSB...... Yep....
