Well, I looked into this RTTY DX Calling Frequency stuff,
and here's what I found out.
7040 kHz has been the RTTY DX Calling Frequency for quite
a while. That frequency was chosen to avoid the European
phone band. In Europe, the 40-Meter QRP Calling Frequency
is 7030 kHz.
Hereabouts, 7040 is frequently clobbered by the keyboard
modes anyway, and they're growing in number. I find that
$500 worth of audio filters hooked up to my inexpensive
QRP rig usually lets me work through them.
Save your stamps, or write about something else, gang.
Looks like we're stuck with this one.
