I don't know about you, but where I live they ran out of channels..

With all the low power translators, there is sometimes as many as 3 stations on the same channel.

I'm using stacked Winegard 8200u with a Channel Master CM 7777 pre amplifier,  with a Antennas Direct XG 91 with another Channel Master CM 7777 pre amp and a antenna switch, rotor, 30' tower, 20' mast.

I view the Pittsburgh,  Altoona / Johnstown market..

I'm not getting anything anymore out of Cleveland OH, Youngstown OH, Morgantown WV, Wheeling, Clarksburg WV.

10/11 meters / 10 - 10 International Club

From time to time I hear a 10 - 10 contest on 10 meters ssb phone.

In the old days, 10 - 10 club was free, now they charge a fee to join.

Sometimes just for the fun of it, I go ahead and give them my zip code as my 10 - 10 number.

Its comical because they just don't get it.  Some people will come right back to me and say - that isn't your number.  I'm like - who cares?

I hear people on the cb radio using numbers, and I wonder are those numbers self assigned or is there some type of club that they join that assigns them their number..
