I don't see anybody down that way from Georgia, Paul. 

Why'd he choose to go so far below the accepted PSK-31 window?

I'd like to work him for sure!

Although no one "owns" a frequency, it's common courtesy to leave someone alone if he is calling CQ or running stations on that frequency. Had a "person" start calling CQ on the frequency I was using and I had been watching that frequency for about 10 minutes before calling. As sson as I sent the "K", he started caling CQ; so I just moved up. Heard him earlier on 14070 calling CQ and I was up around 14072... looks like he was on a fishing expedition.

I have always used PSK Reporter.info maps to track band/mode activity.

Currently (4:46 UTC), they are showing 70 PSK31 signals being heard by monitoring stations on all bands in the past 15 minutes, with almost half of those signals on 20 meters. There is some DX traffic between the US and Canada and various parts of Europe. so that is promising.

However, in contrast, there are 2437 signals using FT8 in that same 15 min period involving stations in North America, South America, the Carribean, Europe, Asia (including Japan), South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Although the largest number of signals are on 20 meters, there are some on every band from 160 meters up to 6 meters

I have not tried FT8, but I have got to admit that with poor band conditions during weak solar cycles, modes like FT8 and JT9/JT65 might be the best option for making contacts, especially if you are looking for DX. As a proponent of PSK, and PSK31 in particular, that is not an easy admission for me to make.

I don't disagree, but at my age I don’t remember everything I read 100% of the time.

As for you 2nd statement, I could make some arguments against it, but in theory you're correct.

Nonetheless, Elmering is (or at least should be) a big part of this hobby. And I contend that if a person isn't willing to Elmer, they don't belong in the hobby. (Not pointing the finger at anyone - just making a general statement.)

I have always used PSK Reporter.info maps to track band/mode activity.

Currently (4:46 UTC), they are showing 70 PSK31 signals being heard by monitoring stations on all bands in the past 15 minutes, with almost half of those signals on 20 meters. There is some DX traffic between the US and Canada and various parts of Europe. so that is promising.

However, in contrast, there are 2437 signals using FT8 in that same 15 min period involving stations in North America, South America, the Carribean, Europe, Asia (including Japan), South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Although the largest number of signals are on 20 meters, there are some on every band from 160 meters up to 6 meters

I have not tried FT8, but I have got to admit that with poor band conditions during weak solar cycles, modes like FT8 and JT9/JT65 might be the best option for making contacts, especially if you are looking for DX. As a proponent of PSK, and PSK31 in particular, that is not an easy admission for me to make.

Told one op after I had been running a frequency during a contest that I, in fact, did own the frequency because he sold it to me !  He shut up and went away.

Although no one "owns" a frequency, it's common courtesy to  leave someone alone if he is calling CQ or running stations on that frequency.  Had a "person"  start calling CQ on the frequency I was using and I had been watching that frequency for about 10 minutes before calling. As sson as I sent the "K", he started caling CQ; so I just moved up. Heard him earlier on 14070 calling CQ and I was up around 14072... looks like he was on a fishing expedition.

I have always used PSK Reporter.info maps to track band/mode activity.

Currently (4:46 UTC), they are showing 70 PSK31 signals being heard by monitoring stations on all bands in the past 15 minutes, with almost half of those signals on 20 meters. There is some DX traffic between the US and Canada and various parts of Europe. so that is promising.

However, in contrast, there are 2437 signals using FT8 in that same 15 min period involving stations in North America, South America, the Carribean, Europe, Asia (including Japan), South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Although the largest number of signals are on 20 meters, there are some on every band from 160 meters up to 6 meters

I have not tried FT8, but I have got to admit that with poor band conditions during weak solar cycles, modes like FT8 and JT9/JT65 might be the best option for making contacts, especially if you are looking for DX. As a proponent of PSK, and PSK31 in particular, that is not an easy admission for me to make.
