I'm a newbie back at it. I'm not mike shy so I happily call out on 19FM. A good percentage of the time I do pick up a copy. (If you don't ask you don't get).
I have a CRT 900N so do have other bands/channels to play with. What are the best channels for calling out on these?
Best wishes
Dave

hi Dave, when the bands are open there is plenty of EU stations on the old mid block (FM) and 27.555 (usb)

Hello Dave,

When the prop is open to the States, try Ch38 lsb on mid block. Ch31 fm on mid block is good for contacts into Europe. Another lesser used frequency is 26.285 usb.👍
