11m Band Activity observation 21 Dec 2022
« on: December 21, 2022, 1920 UTC »
1900 UTC, 27.383 mhz lsb. A group of knuckleheads deciding to create their own channel 2khz under .385. Creates the usual qrm wars that one might assume. The group blows off anyone complaining, of course. ;-)

That's always fun.  They're on what, 27.383 MHz LSB? 

Would make more sense to use 27.380 MHz or 27.390 MHz.  During the peak of the last sunspot cycle, I regularly heard stations on 27.360 LSB, 27.370 LSB, 27.380 LSB, 27.390 LSB and 27.400 LSB (in addition to the usual 27.385 LSB and other nearby legal channels).  2 kHz isn't enough.  Sounds like they did it more to create chaos on 38LSB vs. actually to have a clear frequency.  If they can all move down to 27383 LSB, they can almost certainly move down to 27380 LSB (or up to 27390 LSB). 

Whatever happened to folks just switching to the other sideband?  Every radio that has LSB mode also has USB mode.
