Ah. Well, 20m might work for NV-UT at the moment, but 40m is much more likely. Hang on....

Nope. Also, 15m might be better for that. Maybe even 10m.

I can get on in a minute or two. Band(s) of your choice.
What is your radio/antenna combo? You aren't hearing anything at all on 20m?

And dan, there is a lot of activity on 15 and 20 here in western NV. You should be able to hear something....

Calling CQ ARFCOM at 14.283
Link Posted: 1/19/2015 8:13:04 PM EST
Yep, nothing. I made some calls too.
Link Posted: 1/19/2015 8:14:06 PM EST
40 meters might be a better band this time of night.

I hear something on 14.283, but nothing readable. Preamp and filters working hard.....

I'm hearing someone calling CQ arfcom on 14.283, but too far down in the mud for me to make out. AB8 maybe?

40m wire dipole is the easiest antenna to make and deploy, you should make that the next project.

I got the headphones on now and I heard somebody.

Yep, not very far away. Probably has to do with the big valley I'm down in.

No, I got there right after I think.

So, squelch and HF SSB don't mix. You need to leave it all the way "open" when running phone HF ops.

Well 20 meters isn't a good band for as close as we are.

The strongest signal for me on 20 at the moment is W5CBO on 14.258 in TX. 20 over, but he's about to sign, though.
