Hi. I have been a ham op. for about 6 or 7 years now. Having only the basic qualifications, i can only operate over the 30Mhz. And to be honest, i have spent most of my time on the 11 meter band. Anyways, i was thinking that i would like to get on the 6 meter. I dont know if there is any local activity here but i am looking forward to do some DXing. Even though unlocking a clarifier for SSB use in the 11 meter band is illegal, most people do it. I personally run a stock rig and it works fine for me. I would like to know, is it the same deal in the same 6 meter band? When it comes to SSB operations, do people use "unlocked" clarifier or there is simply no such thing in the 50Mhz? I am asking this because if i eventually get a 6 meter radio, i want to know what i will be looking to buy, a RCI-5054DX seems to be resonable for the budget i have, and i always liked the ranger products! Please, any comments about this article would be appreciated and helpfull. Thanks
