I was on right at 9 but no one else was around, so I went back in the house for a bit. Came back out at 9:30 to hear Tramontana & Brian talking.. then YRM & I QSY'd over to .460 for some hot simplex action.. I was transmitting at 1 watt and he was at 5.. came through fine as good as any CB conversation could have been. Except that I think you live about 30 miles away from me It's cool being almost 3000' above the city, I can hit all y'all..

Whoops,,Our Bad. For you nOObies, when we "QSY simplex" or "QSY 460" means we are changing freq to 146.460 and talking without using the repeater. If you are on a mobile you can change freq and QRO (increase power) and still maintain contact. If your on a HT you're probably SOL, but try it anyway, you might be surprised. I hope we didn't come off as rude by leaving everyone in the dust and I didn't think about till Tim posted this up.

So...till next week....we'll start on 145.310 and see if Corbet and Hants join in, if not we'll move to a local machine and take it from there. If your using a HT, whip up a twin lead "J" pole so when we go simplex you can hang in with the group.

When you QSY'd you did not mention the frequency. I followed the rest.

Hey guys,

I'm new to the board and was hoping to meet up with you last night. Are you not starting on 145.145 anymore? I listened there for about 10 minutes. Maybe I just missed you.

Ah....just read the last post. So you start on 145.31. I guess I did hear you all then....just didn't know it was you. I'll try for next week.

Thanks,

Eric/KG0YS

Guys, sorry we didn't make the 146.460 more clear last night, I wrongly assumed that was obvious. That frequency is, for you newer Ham guys, the official Rising Sun simplex channel, which we shamelessly stole from the Norcal 80's.. Of course it's completely unofficial as far as the FCC is concerned, it's just a number on the dial that we all agreed to switch to (yes a lot like #4 on the citizen band).

Bill if you want to try out that rig of yours some other evening just post up, doesn't have to be a Monday man..
