I'm curious, we don't have Field Days in these 'ere parts. I assume
from the comments that the bands were very busy, and they were five
deep in operators, and the signals from half of them were total krud.
I would have thought in circumstances like this that people would
spread out a bit like they do when there are contests. As we all know
to our cost they spread out during RTTY and CW contests, some as far
as Love Co. in Texas ! Strange situation because at least once a
month somebody posts a woeful bilet doux on either e-ham or QRZ
complaining about the fact that " ham radio is dead " or " is ham
radio dying ?" usually spelt dieing.
I don't think there's much chance of 30 being as busy as 20 but we do
get our fair share of grotty transmissions. The situation will change
when we get to 200 in the sunspot count, everybody then will be on 10
metres or the "magic band", (Hey, I've seen more magic in a Pot
I'll take a walk through the enchanted garden down to the shack
shortly and see if there's anyone except Italians and Germans on the
