Is there much interest in 11m DX operation?

Postby lars » Thu Feb 16, 2017 8:16 pm

Hi folks

Is there much interest in DX communication using any (or all) of the amateur 28.0-29.7 MHz band, the UK-legal AM/SSB band 27.0-27.4 MHz, or the dubious region between these two? This general region is of interest to me, because the sizes of even simple antennas are manageable, and long-distance contacts ought to be possible, if the conditions are favourable. However, I don't hear a great deal in this area on my scanner; what I do hear is mostly German and Italian.

Best wishes
Lars

There are plenty of amateurs active on the 10 Meter Band.
CB is in general referred to as 11 meters, even though legal CB is actually like the amateur radio band on 10 meters.
Southgate ARC has a regular contributor who lists DX activity & during the summer FM can be a bountiful hunting ground.
The United States has a 10-10 group who keep the band alive with regular nets & DX activity.
Because antennas are small 10 meters is a great band for efficient HF activity, I personally enjoy both 10 & 17 meters.
