Whenever I activate 40 ssb I am always asked to qsy below 7.100 for the French chasers.
The only one I see in your log is F/G6OZZ/P, 25th August 2007? No joy with the others Barry?
A roundabout route, via the IARU website and then the French section led me to the Bandplans for France. The most recent one I could find was 2006, which indeed indicates that 7.100MHz is the upper limit at present for stations operating in France. They will get 7.100 to 7.200MHz from 1st January 2009 from what I can see.
SOTA General Rules state:
All operation must comply with the amateur radio licensing regulations and must use the permitted amateur radio bands of the country in which the Association is based.
…so this looks like an unfortunate misunderstanding - if indeed there were QSOs on 7.118MHz, which is yet to be established.
