Confirmation process VERY prohibitive for me. How about you?

    Hand me a 10 dollar bill and I will never say anything on QRZ again. I'll take the money. I will spend it so fast it will leave blister in your hand. Just kidding.

    How much bandwidth I have access to, or you have access to doesn't matter, when you're out of calibration, and you're 2KHz below the amateur bands...

    And, you also can't seem to figure out why your contacts aren't confirmed, lol.

    Actually, it is better. I can access the WARC bands :) I can also do digital modes, without making the other op chase me up and down the bands.

    Have fun with the hobby mate. Maybe pick up a freq counter to just for giggles. I'd hate to see you get a warning from the FCC for out of band operation...

    I don't understand what all this hubbub is about.
    I make a QSO, I enter the other party's callsign, I enter the _reasonably approximate_ UTC time, I enter the band, I press "save".

    When the other guy does the same we both endup with a little yellow star.

    That's it.

    Or maybe it's too simple :confused:

    What do you do when your frequency counter is that far out of calibration? Or your digital VFO?

    Why would my XTAL be inherently further out of calibration than yours just because I don't have a digital readout and a microprocessor?

    VFO and freq counter are unlikely to be both out of calibration. Which is why I use both.

    Temperature, voltage fluctuation, cracks, etc etc.

    You're an Extra? Wowsers.

    Close Enough ?

    Getting really close , time wise , can be achieved by utilizing
    the same method demanded by JT65 ... Radio syncing ..

    Before the influx of frequency readout technology became the ' norm ' ,
    amateurs ( like me ) used WWV for calibration of our equipment.
    I STILL DO .... Even my ' Spectronics DD-1 ' frequency display for
    my FT-101 E was calibrated every day before I ran the MSSBN
    ( Missouri Single Sideband Net ) on 3.963 MHz ....

    SOP ... No secrets there ..... :cool:

    This is ' typical ' newbie interactive responses ....
    Gotta change the world just for them ...
    These ' grasshoppers ' will be forever UNHAPPY ! ! !

    These outbursts happen because they were given answers to questions
    when they ' PASSED ' their killer amateur radio exams ....

    Everything , moving forward , MUST be just as EASY ....

    There is no SECRET here ...

    Very true.

    Cool beans :) I somehow doubt, however, that the OP is doing the same though.

    Strike the last sentence. Crossed who I was talking to. My apologies.
