Re: When is everyone on? (psk31)
There are others as well, but hamspots works great for my purposes. Most are reports of actual QSO's or self posting that they are on a given frequency & mode looking for QSO's. But there are some automated receivers which will report call signs heard in CQ's for a given mode. (aka Hamspots monitoring stations) More esoteric modes don't get reported this way very often, but even not when it is a mode you wish to use this can still tell you where others in your area are being heard- meaning that you have a chance as well.
