 I am ready to enjoy 6m CW during band openings. I have been told by one fellow ham that since this is primarilly a "Technicians" band to not expect any CW to enjoy but only USB. I hope he's full of feathers quite frankly...Comments??

That should be 50.100.

Yes, there's quite a bit of CW on 6m.  Mostly 50.080 to 50.100.  A lot of signals can fit in that space, and often do.

Thanks, I was hoping that fellow was mistaken. See you soon on 6!

Be sure to listen the weekend of June 8-9, after 2pm EDST for the ARRL VHF Contest.  Lots of ssb and cw will be heard when the band is open.

I do mostly CW on 6 during the openings. I snagged Washington (state) and Idaho just the other night on 6 cw Smiley During the openings you'll find CW..

I once worked WA state on 6m cw. Not many use it but it`s well worth it,especially for weak signal work.

The last time I was on 6m, I worked FM5 from LA.  That is 7606 km (4726 miles).

There are several openings like that around this time of the year, but you have to pay attention - the openings don't last very long.  The ON4KST chat is a good resource for monitoring 6m openings - you can literally see the openings on the map when somebody succeeds in making a contact.
