    it's not what your doing wrong....it's what you are not doing right. Look in your instruction manual.

    My silly poem aside in a previous post, it's encouraging to learn that, albeit anecdotally, an increased use of a variety of modes appears to be happening. We need to increase activity on all the bands. With better HF band conditions beginning to take place, I hope to hear our frequencies busy, full of signals, day and night. Get on the air! :D

    I totally agree! 10 meters is open right now!! and when everyone hears one mode being used,don't assume that this is the ONLY mode that is usable! TRY PSK,CW,OLIVIA,CONTESTIA,RTTY,etc,etc. if you hear FT8,A BEACON, then you know the band is open.

    During the last solar peak, we did not have FT8 AND 4. There were " new modes " JT65,9 AND 4 and the MAGIC MODE olivia ( this was quoted in QST way back in the early 2000,s ) Now we have these new modes and just a few years ago...JS8CALL....Try them all!

    You're welcome, OM. You're probably the only one who did! :p
    Hmmmm... perhaps I should work on a new one? A limerick, perhaps?

    There once was a ham in De Soto.
    Fellow Zedders thought he was quite loco.
    He made goofy poems,
    some of which didn't rhyme,
    so they told him to knock off the ---- NONSENSE. (??)

    See? I can't even find a word that rhymes with "loco." o_O
