I work mostly CW these days because when I get on phone the antics make me head back down to CW.  It's one would expect now that there are no licensing requirements.  Only thing left is to let us pick our "handles" like on 27mc.  I'm putting in for "The Phantom of 75 meters.....Wink

While listening to XT2TT today, I heard several stations calling on his frequency using (what sounded like) a bug and full QSK.  It certainly sounded like the same guy using different callsigns.

My solution is to do away with split operation completely.  The DX station is taking up 3 to 5 khz of band and the lids answering are taking up 3 to 5 on either side with thier mistuned amps and it is all just a mess.

I am sure that would make you and your net buddies very happy.  Spoken like a true net nutter.

Damned shame the DX has to interfer with your OMISS, etc. nets, huh Huh

I dont think you will get much support for that one here.............

Are you sure you are posting in the correct forum?

I think you did too Gene.  Anyone even with only a superficial understanding of DXing knows about the need for DX split operation.   Roll Eyes

I laugh when someone answers them your 59 and they think they logged the DX. I wish more people did it.

Except that once that happens every thinks they're now working simplex and so you now have 5 more people calling on the DX frequency. This is a TERRIBLE practice.

The first rule of DXing is to LISTEN. I've found that most DX lately has been very good at telling folks they're working split. Most of the Africa DX today indicated so on EVERY exchange. If you can't hear "Up", how can you ever expect to hear your call sign correctly?

If someone is not listening or is inadvertently on the DX frequency, a simple and infrequent "UP" is usually sufficient.
