    This is a rough neighborhood! I now stand corrected on both accounts...

    It actually came as a surprise to me about a year ago! Having rarely operated there someone suggested I give it a try... "but I only operate CW!" ... "it's allowed now, where have you been?"

    You just don't want to admit you kept that nomograph on your desk for a couple of years for convenient reference.

    go to the reverse beacon network website. On the main tab select: spots by callsign and enter your call. Call CQ at the middle of where you think the general band is. This will tell you exactly where you are. You can then repeat higher and lower until you have it mapped against your VFO dial

    I'm not sure I would use the term "exactly" but certainly close, and it only matter in two places, top of the band and bottom.

    RBN returns spots sometimes a couple of tenths off what I am showing, and sometimes a bit off on the speed.
