Post 6 Metre Band. Meteor Scatter
Which freq. is the most used for MSK144, 50.280 or 50.360?

Who on the forum regularly uses MSK144 on the band, and which freq. do you use?

Have always used 50.280 for random MSK MS, sometimes with a qsy freq in the CQ if there's lots of activity or a big meteor shower.
Still some very good meteors about in the mornings but almost everyone sits waiting for the Es so hardly any activity on MS.

I've always used .280, but I've recently seen several stations calling CQ on .360. Just wondered.

According to the literature, the period after local dawn is the best time for random MS outside showers, but at this time of year 0300 UTC is a bit early to get up, especially if there's no one about (except you Kelvin; your one of the 6 Metre Stalwarts)

Nah, I just like listening to white noise Stewart :lol:

Not sure as I use MSHV 100% here, but maybe the default on the other s/w is 360 - maybe a Stateside default ?

Hope to catch you in the Perseids if about, may be less Es then and more activity.

p.s. the listening to white noise is pretty close to the truth, I use cans all the time
