Uh-huh... This weekend, the Amateur Radio bands will go nuts with activity for a 24hrs period.   https://www.arrl.org/field-day  But, if you should want to avoid this, then the WARC bands, and the 5MHz (60M), Band, is a great escape. One thing about this heatwave going on is for some nice enhancement in the higher VHF and UHF bands, with Tropo Propagation, especially late night and early mornings. I believe that National Simplex 146.520MHz FM is forbidden to use for contesting, but all other Simplex FREQ's should be game. Happy contesting???
Recently, a co-worker quizzed me on, "What would happen if you were to apply reverse polarity to the Energizer Bunny?". Having no idea, I asked, "What would happen?". The answer is he'd keep coming and coming and coming...
