Clarifier is what the contol on my Uniden AM/SSB tranceiver I used to use
when we went camping.

I put it up last year to see if there was any local CB activity to see what
the conditions for 10M AM might be. The 11M band was just as dead as
everyting else. And local acifity is not a function of the solar cycle
except that no DX is coming in.

If Low Band FM works for local communication, then 10M can be used for local
communication. Even our 2M FM repaeters are dead except at comute times and
druing the local repeater nets. And that's only a couple times a week. It
lools like the old art of "RAG CHEWING" is fading into history.
