Hello
I am new to six metres and learning propagation etc.
The question I ask is there any digital activity like PSK, RTTY on six metres?
I have been listening 50.250 and 50.290 for psk and 50.600 and 50.300 for RTTY.
In the four month of listening on openings only 3 Italian stations heard and worked and an Estonia station worked.
Does anyone hear any other activity?
Thanks for any information

Best Regards Allan G4UGA

I operate psk on six and have had some great contacts, cant see any reason why other data modes like RTTY are not heard that often, will have to see what 2014 brings us.
