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.
