Jim with your knowledge, a trip to the next hamfest would cure the Advanced
license. Just take the time. Do a couple practice runs on one of the
computer sites to see what the subject matter is and you are off and
As for 3 QSOs on 80, 85, and 90, sadly is ain't gonna happen. Where I live
the signals emitted by some stations are very strong. This morning was a
case in point. one on 3.880 and another on 85. The 85 bunch, I think, was
the 0s who get on in the morning but without some closer stations or
stronger signals, I couldn't tell.
I like to talk among groups from time to time and urge everyone to establish
a different frequency. Say the 1s near 3.8, the 2s near 3.815, etc. With
different operating schedules no particular portion of the band would be
occupied all the time. And it would give us the opportunity to move between
groups with out undue interference.
Just some thoughts.
