Hello everyone I have just joined your group and I am considering becoming a paid up member, theirs some great info and I have only scratched the surface yet.
So you may ask why join...... well I am active on HF and 2 but I wanted somthing different so I have put a 3 element beam up for 6 metres and when conditions are good I will be working DX, although I have been monitoring the fm calling frequency for 3 hrs and not heard a soul yet :phones:
Well thanks for having me and I will try and contribute as I go along.
Regards Mark.

Hello Mark
Its a great group here and a wonderful band when it's open, there's even opportunities to work DX via digital mods and meteor scatter at other times.
Re activity, there's an RSGB contest on 6m on Tuesday evening 20:00 to 22:30 where there's usually load of activity. More details here - http://www.rsgbcc.org/cgi-bin/contest_rules.pl?year=2013&contest=6mukac&seq= these contests occur on the 4th Tuesday of each month. Last month there were 227 active stations across the UK. Activity is usually in SSB.
I hope we'll hear & work you one day

Hello Mark,
Welcome to six, just got back on myself, you not to far away if you want a chat on six drop me an e-mail and will come on six. Had some great dx on six over the years, you would be surprized what you can get with a three element yagi, USA will be no problem.
cheers
