I hope all members and non members are well in these strange times.

A couple of us are trying to bring back local activity on 10M. We are monitoring 28.500Mhz USB as a non official calling frequency. Give us a shout and make 10M active again.

Look forward to hearing you.

Great Idea James, do hope it takes off, often thought 10 mts was ideal for local , ground wave contacts. I f you think about it CB radio works on 11 mts. By using 10 mts also at this time of year always possible European contacts with Sporadic E

Best Wishes

Hi Rod, I agree 100% with you. We used to use 10M back in the late 00's with Dick G4LDZ and Mik G0KBY on 29.620 FM Simplex. It worked really well and we had a lot of fun. Would be great to start something back up. Sadly I suffer with high interference from a car which causes a bit of noise on 10M.

I'll keep listening to 28.500 USB throughout the day.

Hi Alan,

Isn't that always the way :-). I did listen on and off yesterday and gave a few shoutouts myself. I'm usually about in the late day, you may see my comment to Rod on my local interference, at least s7 noise so makes it difficult at times.

Hello All
Just worked Paul M1AFQ and Scott M0BLH on 10 mtrs FM. Could not believe the quality. May I suggest that we use another frequency in the 29 mhz range and use FM. After studying the band plan I dont think the use of FM on 28.500 is advisable as the band width is wider than SSB. What do you all think??
