Operating Plan

We will mainly work Split. Please do not call on our transmit frequency, (unless specifically asked). SSB split will start most of the time 5 KHz up from our transmit frequency.CW/RTTY will start 1 KHz up from our transmit frequency. We will also try to keep our splits as narrow as possible. If we are not listening UP, we are listening DN. Always listen to and follow the operators instructions. No specific frequencies has been choosen as yet. Keep watching the DX clusters or spots. We will be making provisions to work within the US General band plans also.

The operating plan may change as required.
