It was fun to let it run on 10M when the band appeared dead and I was busy around the shack. Several times I worked some good DX on the "dead" band.


Good lesson!

One of my Elmer's once told me that he had never heard to receivers talking to each other. At some point in time, someone has to transmit!

^^^^^ yeah, I think he's referring to the KC4 guy near Atlanta. I often hear his recording going non-stop on that 10 m frequency for what sometimes seems to be hours at a time.

Lot of people I hear using these tapes sound like they had their 'nads removed. 

I agree, however it's that type of audio that breaks through pile ups. I've heard Dxpedition ops thank others for running narrow audio.

I would say 75% of the big contest stations use recorders during contests. Especially, in the countries where English is not often spoken. It's common to hear DX stations using the recorder to make the basic exchange in English.  However, the operator then struggles to use English for any fills.

I have used the Audio recording on My FT920 for Many years although Only for Calling "CQ Contest" or during a DXpedition where I give My callsign in Narrow audio.. other than that I still prefer to talk to My Radio...
but I'm not out to actually Win any contests these days..
I have been noticing for Many years of Badly recorded Callsigns during contests which make it difficult when you can't make out the call and enter it into the Log. These are usually from Non English speaking countries and the Recorded Callsign [if done correctly] would be Excellent... but alas How do you tell these stations about the problem??  Recently I have heard contest stations that their callsign has been clipped on the end, making it impossible again, for Me to understand .. So, the Audio recordings would be Excellent if they were done Correctly, but to hear the same recorded callsign which You cannot understand... over and over again... hoping that they might just press the Mike button just this one time... Hi hi.. So I then have to Ask what their callsign is...  It still amazes Me that these stations can keep working stations, that somehow do understand the recorded audio..
