Here's a screenshot of the last 30 minutes of stations my Whispering Raspberry has contacted on 20m wspr mode...one of which is ON7KO just north of Brussels Germany! That's 6,764 kilometers on 200mw of power!!! Through this project I've noticed that with the gray line comes great propagation on 20m. I'm really looking forward to seeing how or what changes in what ways during the eclipse on Monday... ...

After a local VE was kind enough to get the FCC to clarify, beyond any Doubt... its very liberal policy of the FCC to allow individual Hams to sell/trade Anything that might normally be found in their Ham Shack... A very reasonable approach by the FCC in my opinion, as it has the effect of getting more Hams on the air, keeping them on the air, and keeping them talking. It keeps old equipment in circulation, and gives the financially challenged Ham the ability to have more choices. The Hamfest in its physical form has taken on a National Holiday Status, so the online, on the web, or the on the air version of a Traders Net, is just as a natural extension of something considered to be as Big a part of Ham Radio as calling CQ. In keeping with the spirit of using all parts of the Spectrum so we can show why we need them (or want them), there is a local Traders Net that is on local repeaters every Friday night and in reach of all of our members. Run from anyone trying to limit your rights in any endeavor. There exists no exclusivity in Amateur Radio. No one has a Corner on any of it. It belongs to all of us. The Amateur Code is one of sharing. Below is the description of that local Traders Net. If you want to use this Right Granted by the FCC to Hams, here is an Avenue to go there locally.
"""""""""""""DESCRIPTION
