    Several people are Doing DX voice communications on the 14.230 Mhz and 14.233 Mhz this is to be used for SSTV we need to respect the rules...
    Also People are using QRP frequencies badly with lots of power.
    This not acceptable.
    Please consider to check a chart list plan of frequencies before doing wrong things.

    Stations Voice calling DX on the 14.233 Mhz today 25-03-2020 Time 18H30 to 19H00 Local time Portugal, the Call Sign: GD1JNB everyone answered to him wrongly attention to the Frequency you are using before giving an answer to a DX call.

    Extracted from the logbook I was not able to advice them by radio, because my antenna is in a poor condition, I did several atempts without sucess. My Rig Is a Keenwood TS-850SAT

    Oh! Good! Another do ham radio my way post.

    Jose, OM... There are, to my knowledge, no hard and fast rules about where to operate any given modes that apply to every country every where. All that we can hope for is a set of "Gentlemen's Agreements" that suggest where to operate certain modes.

    No one net / mode / operator can lay claim to any given frequency. You should know that and you also should know that complaining about it here does absolutely nothing except make you feel good.

    Do you feel good? I hope so.
    Now, about this:
    I must have missed the memo where you were made the grand emperor of twenty meter frequency assignments. Can you please provide the assembled masses here a .pdf of of the proclamation, preferably suitable for framing? Thanks, that would be nice, and then we call all abide by the emperor's (your) decisions.

    OK, thanks! We will be anxiously awaiting the documents!

    I am an SSTV user but I must disagree with CT2KFQ! There is only a band plan, not a rule regarding SSTV on 14.230. That said, I would appreciate it if folks followed that band plan, but there is no rule...

    Sorry, for your apparent frustration, Jose. But. There is nothing illegal, unethical, inappropriate, improper, invalid, or immoral about operating legal limit and/or SSB in the frequency range 14.230 Mhz and 14.233 Mhz. If the frequency is clear, then it is legal, proper, and fair for anyone properly licensed to use it. That said, if someone is ( clearly ) using it, then one should find another frequency. That is a simple courtesy.

    Band plans are nice, but they are not rules or regulations. I will honor band plans that I am aware of, but you cannot expect everyone to be familiar with someone's band plan.

    QRP is not an official "mode" ... If I hear a weak signal in QSO I will avoid that frequency, but if he is weak, I may not hear him, in which case it is quite legal and fair for a non-QRP station to operate on that frequency with the mode and power levels that are authorized.

    What they said. There is no rule against these things and you don't get to decide what is unacceptable.

    Dear Sir respect is respect or we need police to correct our bad behaviors? I respect the SSTV frequencies also the QRP frequencies when I did my Ham Licence everyone told to respect the other this people tehy were doing a DX destroying the SSTV communications the channel was busy with people trying to send SSTV the rules are very clear about this never use an ocuppied frequency or go above others but if you what to be the anarchist guy be my guest... for me you can do what it pleases you to do its not my problem someday someone will nok your door or you get a fine to pay...

    Think that through before you go too far down that path... The rule makers are the ones deciding what is acceptable, you are just the messenger...
