Lots of activity down here.
At the SS Red Oak Victory, as K6YVM, didn't hear anything on 3870 except a Spanish broadcast station. Went to 7293 called CQ, skunked until 1430, then 3 nice QSOs and good signal reports. I'll operate again tomorrow.
Send a msg if you want to try a sched.
I have pics but can't figure out how to upload from my phone. Maybe later.
Calling CQ on 3.721 again.
Let's "spread-em-out," shall we?
I heard some ops with just that spirit! Full-carrier QSOs logged on 3830, 3845, 3900, and the usual hang outs.
And, incredibly, W1AW holding court for 7+ hours on 3885.
On for 14 hours, then the band went quiet. 240 contacts so far. Will be back again Sunday
W1AW; WB1GCM OP.
You sir, deserve a commendation. Single-handedly managing a pileup for that length of time?
The word that comes to mind is "indefatigable". Net controllers should be in awe.
I had forgotten about this until I saw this post bumped tonight. I'll try to get on tomorrow. My classic I have and the one I'm mulling buying are neither ready to go but my modern plastic radio (Yaesu FT-990) does AM, such as it is.
Helped W4REQ move on Saturday---12 hours straight. Hit the knee curve at 10 PM EST that evening and went to horizontally-polarized. BUT, just worked W1AW on 7290 just now.
It was good to speak with you last night Bob and the Super Senior sounded very good.
Thank you for "hanging" in there and helping to promote the AM mode.
