locked Re: Operating on the 50's


you should try. but it is NOT necessary!

Honestly Joe the maker of this incredible mode says the same thing.

you can have almost completely overlapping signals and not effect either one. the mode is sooo cool to ignore the signal it does not need.

The other thing is that would be a HUGE waste of THE FREQUENCY .

They don't HAVE to have clean air. you can literally have two stations
only 5hz apart and work them just fine!

If everyone would operate on the 50’s, which is: set your transmit tone
frequency to multiples of 50 I.e. 200, 250, 300... ...2900, 2950, 3000.
It would immediately make more room.
Here’s an example.
Operator 1 is on 1200
Operator 2 is on 1275
Operator 3 is on 1350

Operator 2 on 1275 is taking up 2 slots.
