Re: 30M

David Blankenburg, AK7DB
 

If anyone is ever on 30m between 05:00 - 07:00 UTC let me know, I'd love to make some PSK contacts.  Lots of dead air when I look for PSK contacts there.  I'm also looking for 17m and 80m contacts during the same time frame.  I don't have a chance to get on until after 10pm PST and the only activity seems to be FT8 these days.

If you haven't noticed, 30M is getting real busy with the FT8 also. They are at 10.36, so they may be far enough away. I keep trying 30 but never seem to get anyone.

I'll echo what David said.�� The weak signal modes are not for ragchewing, but with how a lot of people use macro's psk31 (myself included) is becoming the same.

I love this club because the challenges are fun and the contest are creative.� I sure would like to see another contest get added to the rotation wherein no macros beyond and are allowed.� Sure would be a fun contest.

Have you ever tried to have a conversation over a JT mode? It's
practically impossible. There's also nothing "fast" about JT. When all
you can send every minute is a handful of characters, it doesn't lend
itself very well to ragchewing.

Don't rag on the modes; they have valid uses and work well for what they
are meant to do: terse communication in bad conditions. Not every mode
is meant to be used for ragchewing and should not be blasted because the
design of the mode doesn't lend itself to it. Use the right tool for
the job and don't expect a mode to be something it isn't. I can use a
screwdriver as a hammer, but it makes a much better screwdriver. I
can't be upset if it makes a crappy hammer; I chose to use it
incorrectly.

This is a valid discussion for something like PSK-31 where conversation
as a ragchew *is* possible. Now you are talking about the operators
being the ones that are not interested in talking and just sending
macro, macro, SK. That's not the case with JT modes. They are not
designed as conversation modes, they are designed as contact modes that
can reliably send small bits of information. If that's not what you
want, then just don't use them.

Working WAS on two meters is a lot of time,  440  lifetime.
