what is this fascination with 3880 to 3885? last evening my s meter did not 
fall below +20 tuning through that area and each side. there is no possible 
way to have a QSO at times like that unless you are talking to your next 
door neighbor!  I gave up and went to 3705, called cq for 30 minutes untill 
dave w9ad ran across me.  I could find only three or four ssb stations 
between 3.6 and 3.7.   the low end is almost not used, if it is not going to 
be used the band might as well be changed back where it was.  And yes, I 
know this has been brought up before, and yes I know there are generals, not 
an excuse for most, a few hours with the license manual and you are an 
extra. I talked with a 13 year girl a while back that was an extra!!   I 
will be back on the low end tonight around 3.7 +or -15, maybe I can get a 
ssb to respond.  Of course maybe it is just that no one wants to talk to 
me!!   I have also been listening and calling on 7160 and 7290 for several 
days without a nibble.    Just about ready to throw in the towel and get rid 
of my junk. Bernie
