The band seems to be having a late "post summer" wake up.


Anyone else think so?

Been a bit sporadic but definitely there.

Had a lot of French but mostly skipping around in and out around Europe so no firm QSO's as yet.
Fingers crossed for a good winter season because the summer skip weren't half bad Smile

I remember my first SSB dx contact it was 1978 in the old illegal days there was no T5 (27:555) calling channel then it was just pic a random frequency and just call I was using a old Stalker 9 sitting in my bedroom on a Saturday morning calling out when suddenly I got a reply from a station in Sicily sh*t the life out of me when I heard him lol , I've done loads much better over the years on radio  , but funny you always remember ya first DX copy.

They are great radios, Martin.👍 I still use my Stalker 9fdx regularly, it has the stealth front on it. The receive on ssb is a joy to listen to. Doesn't drift on frquency either.

Perhaps they were tuning up the old 2kw linears! Very Happy

You do often hear the old, "Ow-dee-oh, Ow-dee-oh, *whistle*", sometimes over someone else's QSO!
Don't think they've heard of 'silent tuning' Wink

Hindsight is a wonderful thing, Martin. Lol. I have done the same thing with cars. I look at what Escort RS Turbos are going for these days and it makes me want to cry.🤣
