Re: great conditions


great to hear you are doing well!!
as allways im after something,
60 over 9?
coming from a cb background i allways used "your giving me 5 and 9" meaning radio 5 (perfect audio) and 9 as a signal strength, have i got it wrong?
i may apear daft but if you dont ask you dont learn!!!!

Re: great conditions


Lots of slightly different versions emoticon

I hear 7 and 9 from some of the 2 div ops.

But I use the 1-5 clarity scale and the 0-9 signal scale the same as most people emoticon You can have 0 as a signal, but if it was 0 on the clarity, then you wouldn't be able to hear them at all!

But we all interpret it slightly different, my sig reports are probably on the low side. Most ham guys just say 5/9 whatever the signal report emoticon

Great to see you're getting some good conditions emoticon

Maybe I'll hear you from here over the weekend, keep an eye on the cluster and I'll give you a shout in the morning UTC.

Re: great conditions


I even hear the hams refer to very strong signals "you are coming in at 40 over 9"
