    If you are scanning the HF bands and find what is clearly a digital-mode sounding signal at 14.070 MHz, which mode have you likely stumbled upon?

    14.070 has been PSK-31 for at least the last 15 years. The trivia quiz has the correct answer as RTTY. Unless I'm missing something, this is likely an error.

    Wherever a digital mode was once a known to be found JT mode software developers just decided to park their mode there each and every time. Now you just dodge JT modes and get in where you can because if any mode is said to be found on a frequency they will park one on that one too.

    Yeah, a couple of 3 KHz slices on the higher portion of the band. It's a gull-derned CRISIS I tells ya!

    Only a crisis if it affects CW. You should know that by now.

    I guess the thing is...it doesn't much affect anybody. Dial across the 40 meter CW band , for example. What will you find in the reaches above 7050? Most of the time, unless there is a big contest going on, whole lotta nuttin'. But for some, two 3 KHz segments being used by digital, even in unoccupied territory is...why...IT IS AN OUTRAGE! :rolleyes:

    Somebody should write them a strongly worded letter.

    These days RTTY on 20 is mostly ~14.084 and higher (to avoid JT mode watering holes).

    I haven't done PSK in years, tried to do a little PSK63 during one of the digi tests recently but had no takers.

    OT Thoughts: I recall my first entry into digi modes, Dad got me a RigBlaster for Christmas in 2004, I used to ragchew on PSK31/PSK63 with KC0KBH. He made syrup and had other hobbies too, was a pretty interesting kid (we were both teenagers back then). His license expires soon, maybe I should see if his email address is still valid.
