Now that we having a growing number of associations and chasers… and especially many “within range” on 40m in Europe, I was wondering what people think about the prospect of split freq. operation?
For example (on a weekend) there seem to be many activators who can rustle up over a 100 QSO’s that obviously take time to work. As speed is of the essence on a summit, I wonder if, for example on 40m CW, you might have an activator working on 7.032 and listening 7.033 - 7.034.
The reason I ask is that (having seen if from the activating and chasing end). an activator may struggle with the pile up calling them… and chasers may also struggle when a QRP activator is working simplex but with stations calling over them when working another chaser… as I have heard recently.
So what do you all think? Will it ever happen? Is it a good or bad thing? Is it something just for those really “rare” or new summits?
I look forward to the discussion.
