Well I'm not ready to throw in the towel just yet. I believe there is hope for a QSO between ORR members.

OK, it's 1838 utc and I'm listening on 14.263
Now it's 1849 - nothing heard, going back to monitor the ORR posts.

Gentlemen,

Here's a proposed sked by Stephen (AE5BI) for this coming Saturday. Make a note of it please and lets try to make some ORR on-air contacts ...

- We will give a listen and try 14.260 at 4PM PT but I was warned that this is a popular DX Freq. so if it is busy we'll move up or down a bit. At 6PM we give 7.230 a try. -

That's 6PM CT/7PM ET for 20 meters and 8PM CT/9PM ET fot the 40 meter freq. Am I correct guys ?


I'll be there the good Lord a willing as we say in the south.

73,

I'll try to be there. Yeah Jim, the times are correct. Maybe that's why so many of us use UTC (I still have to subtract 5, or 4 if it's DST). So that would be 23:59 Saturday or 00:00 for 20m and 01:00 (on Sunday) for 40m.
This is getting too confusing!
Hope to talk then!

Jagco, some of us may be around earlier in the day. Post a freq and time and some may try to make it earlier as well. Thanks.

I'm GMT -8 ("Universal" Time seems a little presumptuos )PT. Confusing because everbody but AZ keeps changing times twice a year!!! Stop it!

Anyway, you have your time right. I too am disabled and am home all day but I watch the stock market like a hawk (currently my only source of income ) until it closes at 1PM cool people time (CPT). Hi, hi...

I watch my email when the PC is on so let me know if you want to set up a sked. I talked to HI yesterday on 14.260 just because I was monitoring to see how busy it was.

Hi Stephen,

I'm listening on 14.230 right now. Quiet here. I'm using a 80 mtr inverted "V".
