Re: Is Grid FM28 a hard one to get?

Yup, kinda figured that many grids out West have more critters than people. Some are probably government land which is probably posted "no trespassing" (Area 51). Some is also in mountains or deserts which often has little or no population.
Guess I'm like you in that I call CQ and am always surprised at whoever answers... just like fishing ! When I work someone for the second time, it's like meeting up with an old friend.

Here in NV many of the grids have more bighorn sheep and coyotes then people so they're tough to get. I just wondered if FM28 was in an area that was not well populated (or only accessible at low tide).
Most of the fun of ham radio for me is "casting out the CQ line" and seeing what you can catch.
