• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I'm in an incredibly electrically noisy environment, and as a Tech class, only able to work 10m in HF. Using a VHF repeater on my HT is one thing, but I wanna see if my radio and antenna are working, so if there's anyone round about Wisconsin running 10m, I've been tuning around and listening on 28.420, USB.

You might try looking for a Ten-Ten net. Even in the doldrums of the worse sunspots, there is activity there.

..........A link to their Home Page :

............. It always a neat group of people.... and when 10 has been open, I have chatted on these nets from all over the world.)

Good Luck !

Ask around among the local hams to see if they know about any local 10m nets or regular watering holes. There's a group in the Indianapolis area that meets on 28.380 MHz just about every evening.

I live in Indiana. Lots of E skip lately on 10m. 600 to 1000 mile range. Typical for June and July, and we had a few openings at the end of May. And a few random ones scattered throughout "off" season as well. You can never predict E skip, but most of it clusters in June and July in North America.
