Jan 24th, 21:33 zulu.  10 meters open right now, looks like I'm hearing some illegal activity (AM voice) on illegally modified CB rigs set to a frequency 900KHz higher than it should be. 

Maybe it's time for a RTTY contest on 28.085MHz...   Grin

Multi band CB radios have gone up to 28.305 for 35 years to my knowledge. But then Russian taxis (Olga as the CBers over here call them) have gone up to 29MHz on FM

Good Lord, 90% of ten meters is never used for anything.
I don't understand why hams are so obsessed with CB'ers.

You must earn the privilege, before you can legally use the band. No excuses!

So, the answer is licensed hams QRM'ing them.

In the meantime licensed hams QRM ongoing QSO's with regularity.

These guys aren't bothering anybody but the old maids.

No, they are QRMing us.  It's our band, not theirs.  Why don't you try calling CQ on a frequency outside of the ham bands and see what happens.

All too true, unfortunately.

Yes they are.  They are interfering with the legitimate users of 10 meters.  If somebody throws a carrier or an RTTY test on top of them, it's their problem.

Yes, a RTTY CQ would be in order. :-)  Give the bootleggers an inch, and before you know it it'll be much worse.

It is NOT illegal to QRM illegal ops with a legitimate CQ, BTW.

If they're handling bonafid(sp) life and death emergency traffic, I wouldn't QRM that.  Maybe lend a hand, if appropriate.  Otherwise, CQ RTTY.

Absolutely correct! That would be much different. All the rules are changed when there's a serious emergency. However, I'll wager a gazillion bucks that they weren't.  Grin

That is comical. You couldn't advertise and get enough people interested in radio to cause a problem on 10 meters anywhere other than in your head.

When this current generation of 60 plus year old hams go that will be the end of it.

always thought that most CBers had moved over to their mobile 'Phones.
- or over here, at least, up to UHF CB
 Roll Eyes

- brings back memories of those old timers, who got cranky at CBers operating on 11Metres.
most of whom, did upgrade to a novice ticket & beyond. ..

- you guys wanna hear Asia on 10 / 11M ??.
fishing boats - not Taxi's.

Army MARS has some frequencies just above the CB band. We did some regular stuff there locally like testing voice / digital modes. It was always sooo much fun to ask an illegal what his military issued call was... man they would run like rats!   Grin
