Sounds like a good idea. I checked the "Radiochess" Yahoo group - there are only 11 members. A good first step would be for anyone who is interested in radio chess should join that group - sort of "home base". I'm joining as soon as I send this - it's public.

Agreed. That band section would be the best bet. I don't understand why it is under-used either. Have you listened to 80 meters at night lately
Hardly an arguement for the "CW is dead" crowd. The 40 meter N/T freqs are still open up to 7.125 and fairly wide open. There are some slow speed cw nets
that use it - we can check. Yes, the shortwave stations are there but not wall-to-wall. Besides, we really need to make some noise in that part of the band.
I'm a better CW op than a chess player (mediocre at both) but would like to play a game or two.
1. - Anyone interested - join the Yahoo group and revive it.
2. - We can decide on a general freq. to gather at and a day of the week - example, Saturday evening on 7.112 anytime between 8 p.m and 1 a.m. Eastern - something like that. I know for a fact that there are freqs. between 7.100 and 7.125 that are clear all night coast to coast.
We can see how it goes from there...... I'm in.
