Please don’t read this as a complaint, I’m just trying to learn where I might work more stations from the UK and Europe. Any help will be appreciated.
I see a lot of activators in the UK and Europe like 7.118 in the 40 meter band for their activations. Is that a call frequency, or QRP? I’d really like to work more “across the pond” SOTA, but US Extra and Advanced frequencies start at 7.125, and General at 7.175 Mhz, so I can’t call back. Similarly, I think there is a part of the lower 20 meter band where UK hams can work SSB, and we here in the US can’t use it.
I’ve had good luck using the greyline, which basically means I hunt activations during my breakfast time, which ends up being lunchtime in the UK. So when many SOTA activations get going here in the US, it’s nearly your dinnertime.
Any suggestions for making these “across the pond” SOTA contacts work?
Thanks and 73
