    Considering the freq's in question by the OP's post, 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.
    you have quite clearly satisfied that PHONE emissions are allowed. I'll acquiesce that the FCC DOES in fact restrict emission types in certain areas. Got some Corona to go with the crow, I can use a good beer right about now

    Can you use 'Corona' and 'good beer' in the same sentence? :p

    Hey guys, lets not forget we do this for fun. For me, its been fun since 1967 and still is. I've been chased off 14.233 for running ssb when there were no other signals being heard. But I moved and moved on. That was probably 30 years ago. I have moved off a net frequency after having had a qso there for nearly an hour because I was told there was a net about to begin. The control operator politely asked if he could just make an announcement that the net would be on a nearby frequency this day. I said, no, take this one. I can move. Now, if I hear a rare dx station calling cq on 14.233 I'm probably gonna answer him if I hear no one else is using the frequency....though I might remind him the frequency is normally used for SSTV.

    Its all about respecting others and hopefully they will respect me. Let's all have fun.

    NO! But you can use Corona and equine urine in the same sentence.
