    It is wonderful to see some of these modes being used again! Lately the psk band on 20 meters is packed quite a bit of the time. I see olivia,contestia and field hell being used. I wished there was more activity on 17,15 and 12 meters of these modes. These modes are there to be used and use them on all bands. G.O.T.A. and use them!I am on 20 meter psk every morning.

    Good Afternoon

    May those Modes was used every time .
    But more and more we explore that a chat is more as a exange of a call , a grid and a SNR .
    So no wonder you will explore also OLIVIA is still living and you can make great QSOs and chats around the world.
    Belive me , visit

    Greetings and a blessed and healthy Christmas seson

    I am thinking about trying some of those other modes. Particularly PSK. I have done PSK in the past, but I had thought it was dead now.

    Getting a little bored with FT8. I have thousands of FT8 contacts.

    Unfortunately you will find the activity on quite a few digital modes will ebb and flow. I got excited when initially discovering digital modes but then found keeping up with what was the mode du Jour tiresome after a bit.
