    30m is awesome. I enjoy it and do quite well on that band without even having a resonant antenna. I use a multi band windom and have hit the tuner on 30. I don't let that stop me, it works. Not as well as a 30m antenna mind you, but it works well enough to enjoy that band.

    I know this is an old thread. I also know I'm an OF and not always up-to-date on things.

    I never paid much attention to the WARC bands because I've never had any transmitters that operated on the WARC bands. We've only had the WARC bands for less than half the time I've been licensed.o_O

    About nine months ago we moved from our farm to a house 15 miles away, which is considered to be in a city.

    I finally got a reasonable all-band, base-tuned inverted-L wire up about a week ago. I tested it on all the ham bands between 1.8-29.6 MHz.

    Using DSP receivers and PSK Reporter, I have been monitoring FT8 activity on all of the HF bands.

    I was really surprised to see what 30 meters offers.

    Now I just need to get a rig built that will put out a few watts on 30 meters.

    Always late,

    Another zombie resurrection!

    30 Meters has been AMAZING lately! If you're not trying it, you're missing out. Of course, there's no SSB and it has a power limit of 200 watts for US amateurs ...

    Give it a try if you're able - LOTS of CW and FT8 action just about any day and evening - it's always open to "somewhere" :)
