Questions & Answers

  • Why not more on 80m?

My main goal is to give ATNO, not 80m QSOs. I worked almost 3000 stations on 80m FT8/RTTY and SSB (yes, SSB with EU also!). 80m and 160m are NOT my priority.

  • Why not more SSB?

I hate FT8 but look at the poll on right of my site… I often switch to SSB, call 10 minutes without response; made selfspot, call another 10 min without response and…go back to hated FT8 emission.

I can ask you: why you do NOT monitor bands and SSB mode?

I will participate in Russian Contest and WPX SSB Contest coming weekends. I’m curious how many of you will call me…

  • Why not 12/10m for EU/NA?

I monitor 12/10m. I have about 700 QSOs on 10m and similar number on 12m, mostly with Asia.

Solar Flux Index must be above 74 to have a chance for FT8 QSO with Europe. Sorry, it is not that number nowadays…

  1. Janusz,

    I just wanted to say that I’ve really enjoyed trying to work you on every band that I can . I was thrilled to hit you on 15m SSB tonight but I appreciate each and every QSO. Thank you for the activation. I hope you have a chance to enjoy the island while you are there too.


    1. Fred,
      It is always nice to work you but SSB or RTTY contacts are more personal even if they are short. FT8 is like robot’s work…

  2. When paying a fee for a card, would it not be better just to upload a confirmation for that station on LoTw rather than send a card. I would be happy with just that. Thanks
