Hi all,

I wonder if anyone knows of any 2 meter DX Packet Cluster frequencies in the San Francisco Bay Area?  I have found a few listed but none appear to be active. I used to be able to tune my Kenwood TS-2000 to the local packet frequency node and have it move the radio right to the station.

Thanks,

Bill, W6FEI

Bill,

Since you posted your message, I assume you have internet access, and since you are on packet, I assume your computer is near your radio.  Why not use one of the many on-line DX clusters?

How useful are online spotting networks, really? Just watching WSPR propagation maps you can see great variances between different parts of the world at any given moment. Having a DX cluster that includes all people who log in, no matter where they happen to be, doesn't seem all that useful. It seems to me that a regional spotting network (maybe broken out by timezone) would be far more useful.

Then again, I'm not really all that well versed in DX and contesting, either.

I don't use DX Clusters much either, but one's I've see allow you to filter by different parameters, including the location of the reporting station (continent, CQ Zone, etc).
