>Well as I tuned in 7293 the SSB splatter was horrible so I switched over to a SSB rig... What I found was a group on 7288 bashing the AMers and they purposely were running Upper Sideband to "agitate the AMers". I don't know what set them off but they were throwing carriers, running high power with ALC cranked all the way to the right. The SSB signals were as wide an AM signal.
>Tuned in 7293 this afternoon had some nice QSO's. Was on AM about 45 minutes when the group on 7288 started up again. I was watching signals on a SDR, the AMers were running signals 6-7kc wide while some of the 7288 sidebanders were running 5-6 kc wide.
