Simplex and 50.135 MHz at 8:30PM Tuesday
- Now we are adding a six-meter SSB simplex net on 50.135 MHz
at 8:30PM Tuesday, immediately following the two meter FM net. We chose
that frequency because almost all six meter SSB activity is
concentrated at the low end of the band and existing antennas are cut
for the low end. The net uses horizontal polarization because virtually
all installed six meter antennas are horizontally polarized, and a 40
meter dipole is also a 7/2 wave dipole on 6. Anyone with a 40 meter
dipole and a relatively new HF rig can work this net! Of course, all
else being equal, six meter SSB will have much greater coverage than
either two meter FM or SSB. Since an increasing fraction of HF rigs
offer six meter coverage, we are hoping to encourage hams to use that
capability and participate. We are hoping this longer range net will
complement the two meter net and enhance our EMCOM capability. Anyone
who wants to install a dedicated six meter antenna should contact me, [email protected].
I’ve been a six meter operator for almost 60 years, and I can show them
some effective and inexpensive home-brew alternatives to buying pricey
