What’s wrong with 10MHz,18MHz or 24MHz ?
18MHz and 24MHz were jammed today with contest refugees (some somewhat over-powered), at least when I went listening around posted SOTA spots. I guess 10 might have been less jammed, but I didn’t try listening there as I’m still trying (and mostly failing) to get morse into my head…

Sadly, the 817 was no match for the the kilowatt stations on the WARC
Aye, the air-waves were awash with high-power stuff. I could just about hear Bill on Win Green this afternoon, almost, but not quite well enough to make contact.
Congratulations on the MG, Bill. – 73, Rick M0LEP
