    Any mode that you can contact anyone for any purpose is a good mode. Enjoying all the different ones I have run into so far. Each has their place in the spectrums.

    I was using Olivia one evening at 5W to talk for two hours to a ZL. I didn't realize until after we finished my antenna had fallen down some time during the QSO! I have been an Olivia fan ever since.
