      The assigned RS-ID numbers are developed/maintained by Patrick F6CTE of Multipsk.  he has assigned numbers for the normal Contestia and Olivi settings  but I am guessing that it would be rather tedious to assign codes for the "odd" settings that individual hams could come up with.

      I think for 32/250, we are all in the same boat Joe - no RSID.  I would think we could just make announcements here with  settings and frequencies as long there are no objections.


      I was unable to get on tonight..sorry.  We had high winds today, so down came the fiberglass poles.  I plan to be back on tomorrow.

      Thanks,

      Phil I will also give Contestia 32/250 a try above 10142. I'm using MixW so no ID is possible.

      Thanks Fred.

      It appears the best way to use custom settings for Olvia and Contestia
      is to let the world know what those settings are and what frequency one
      is to operate on. Video ID may or may not be practical depending on
      conditions

      I plan to be on 30 meters this week and operate QRP and will announce
      frequencies and times to the group and on http://hamspots.net/30/.

      For bandwidths 250Hz or less, I'll go up above 10.142 MHz. For
      bandwidths greater that 250Hz the region around 10.135Mhz offers a bit
      more room, but this maybe only applicable on this side of the world.
