Re: NM grids on 6M


The problem today is that all the stations that are active on 6/2/432 are almost all on Digital. Very few are monitoring the SSB/CW frequencies. But normally you can find someone on the Digital calling frequencies. JMHO

It should be possible on 144 SSB and CW if he has about 9 elements and 100W.  We should not get so wrapped up in digi modes and forget there are many folks not on digi.  Start with SSB/CW and switch to digi if path/condx are a problem.  I can work W5AKU (9el on 144) running 5w in High Rolls with my 5W and 12 elements only 22ft above gnd plus we can QSO most mornings in 432 .  I have worked KC7QY who is just N of DM63 line and I think he runs 50W; have even worked him on 432 on-digi.

I noticed that W3IH in DM63 has been active in the past few days on 6m digital.  I have decoded him on FT8 here in DM65.  Might be worth a try on MSK144? Mike

Hello all - I only need DM63, 73 & 83 for 6M Worked all NM Grids.  All of these should be easily worked on meteor scatter if the NM end is running a small beam and 100W.


Can anybody help me out with this ?
