Increasing Spanish/Portuguese QSOs in 41 Meter Pirate Band
« on: October 02, 2021, 0038 UTC »
Hearing Tonight 10/2 00:00~ Goofy moment on 41 Meters this Friday night while tuning around at 00:00 - 3 different Spanish etc... QSO's all on LSB, and the only other signal was WQNO's Harmonic on 6970AM. Just thought it was odd hearing only this on a Friday night at that moment and no Pirates lol. I suspect we'll getting even more of the South of the Border QSO's as the Cycle approaches.
