Aug31 23:12 My last comment. I was right 2 years ago. The FT4/FT8 modes, PC to PC software, along with varied misQs on how to operate properly has killed 60m SSB/CW. 73 all, including EA8AK.. HI ... (
Aug06 00:13 Nothing "heard" in way of SSB or CW. Only FT8 audio but no Rig-PC software! Ugggh (
Jun25 03:01 GM anyone try CW on 5352 and QSX to EU? (
Jun24 17:15 anyone here to try via Greyline a cw QSO to USA from Germany? (
Jun17 14:13 another 3 weeks and still no 60m conversation or messages. Ugggh (
May27 14:14 guess everyone on FT8 and don't check in on our "logger" to discuss DX like in the old SSB/CW days. IIWII.. Have a great 2021 chasing DX. (

Mar02 02:17 I was out of town on Feb 27th or I would have called you on CW! Agree that the PC gamers, many operating out of their band or off their channel, are rapidly ruining 60m! Sorry to say. (
Feb27 23:29 CQed over hour listened on ch5 > RBN heared me at 20dB > my Orion 2 got seriously hot! ...simply nothing even although PC gamers wheezing on 357 a lot!!! Unbelievable how this stupid digital QRM ruined ham radio on 60m ! (
Feb27 23:02 Only PCgamers on band again. No CW reply for my CQ on 5354.5 qsx 405 (

Feb14 19:25 dos semanas mas, y nada 60m chat.. Lo siento... 60m no mas para mi.. HI HI - Adios!! (
Feb01 23:43 No mas 60m SSB/CW, lo siento. (
Jan18 00:44 ¡Mi amigo! He bajado completamente 60 metros después de todos estos años desde 2003. Mucha operación poco ética por parte de algunos DXers, operando fuera de los límites de la banda. Es un hobby. ¡Saludos (

Nov29 23:30 Today I decided to STOP all 60m activity. It is an emergency band but FT8 has created some illegal situations off of our 5 channels. Have WAS and DXCC since 2003. 73! San K5YY (

Oct18 22:39 He did not answer my emails on August 4 and Sept 21 about a QSL and my SASE sent on July 14th. I hope he is not deceased! A good friend for many years. Anyone with news about Joe Arcure, JR?? San K5YY (
Aug28 20:21 Please, any news about W3HNK, Joe Arcure, Jr. Is Joe a Silkent Kee). VY TNX Fernando EA8AK (
Aug17 22:36 60m dead for DXing unless FT8. Some signals strong in the -5 to +dB range but not used on CW! Depressing for sure... (
Apr16 02:21 Now someone says 5357 is FT8 only and NO SSB on that freq. There has been NO legal FCC decision on that! Still SSB on Channel 3! (
Apr13 19:39 No attempts from stations outside NA to TRY CW once in a while for the NON-FT8 DXer. True ham radio does SSB and CW when signals > -5dB and certainly when 0+ dB! (
Apr01 23:36 Happy April Fools Day to all 60m operators. Please more CW DXing!! (
Mar13 22:42 Hey SAN, K5YY. 100 / % agree. Worked a few minutes ago FY5KE on 5,3 on CW, fo a total of 219 DX entities wkd on 60 m. Greetings, Fernando EA8AK (

Mar10 22:52 Congratulations Fernando! Hope they get on during our night-time on CW. Agree with you 100% on less FT8 when possible and more CW on 60m..San (
Mar10 20:10 T6AA yesterday and EX0QR a few minutes ago, QRV on CW...OMG. 2 new entities. We need mor "human activity" and less PC machine. 73 de Fernando EA8AK (
Mar06 21:23 too many DX in the FT8 range of -5 to +5 dB but they don't do CW! Maybe don't know Morse code? HI (

Jan15 00:59 Likely will be giving up 60m activity. Stuck on 165 confirmed with NO FT8, all SSB and CW since 2003 July. Fun while it lasted. Too much FT8 and less skeds on CW available. Bye all. Happy 2020. San K5YY (
Jan12 17:31 Due to FT8, FT4 our NA fixed channel 3 is useless for CW on 5358.5 or USB on 5357. We have NO VFO abilities. NA FTmode is ONLY on 5357. FCC is monitoring with help of ARRL. TU!! (

Jan11 17:47 SORRY ... I meant 5357 kc...our NA channel 3. The 5357 is our USB freq in NA and CW is 5358.5. Check the ARRL site for 60m authorizations. San (

Dec28 01:29 Here is hoping all 60m operators, especially the old timers, have a great 2020 New Years! Bless all. (
Dec24 20:05 Merry Christmas to all! Hope 60m activity in 2020 involves all modes when signals are -5 dB and better. (
Dec19 01:19 conditions horrible to mid NA, especially if CW or SSB.. Hope 2020 is better. Merry Xmas all! (

Dec09 20:40 T6AA also on CW today 5353.5 !Nice one.... 73 de SV2AEL Savas (
Dec09 20:27 I was not aware of this "chat " page at all, I got it from the 60m newsletter. Worked T6AA today on the FT8 game (read about that here), I had fun! 73, Bas PE4BAS (
Dec06 14:33 Been reading comments about NA stations on FT8 are WAY off frequency of our channel 3 (5357) (
Nov23 02:40 worked 5N7Q for an ATNO last night for # 162.. Nice that he goes to CW and then to FT8, etc. Hears well. San K5YY (
Oct20 18:22 Reverse Beacon Network 60m Page shows some CW activity http://www.reversebeacon.net/dxsd1/dxsd1.php?f=163 Paul G4MWO (
Oct16 20:20 Started 60m on day 1 in July 2003 and guess my last day was in July 2019.. HATE the way the band has become mainly FT8, maybe next will be 80m and 160m bands. SAD times. (
Oct14 18:29 RP... I tend to agree 100%. FT, non human, has taken over EVEN IF signals are -5 to 0dB copiable range. 60m is now only for FT8 software PC guys. (
Oct12 18:48 No chat no activity. 60m is dead while FT8 gamers flooded the band. Bye DX ham radio on 60m. 1rp (
Oct01 01:18 Nothing heard past 3 nights on 60m.. Perhaps FT8 could have heard something but nothing spotted on DXSummit (
Sep24 22:21 test again. PC acting up. (
Sep12 23:24 Also, appears a minimal amount of chat of this 60m DX Logger site. Much less than just 2 years ago. Hate to see it... (
Sep12 23:22 Appears DXing in general and especially 60m DX chasing is in a slowly downhill course due to FT8/FT4 PC to PC automation software. Lot of talk about downfall of the DXing in general and bad cycle 25 predictions. (
Sep11 15:05 Looks like no way to work CW on 60... (
Sep06 01:58 test (
Aug10 22:02 Did the CY9 do CW or SSB this trip? Understand they were on FT8 mostly. (
Aug08 21:25 60m is open on CW many nights, especially when signals are -10 db or better. But the operators do not take the time to help the CW hams for an ATNO. Sad and getting worse. (
Jul17 16:55 I will listen tonight at my sunset and hope he is on CW again and will listen UP for NA on 5403 or 5373.. YY (
Jul17 16:54 Fernando. Sorry I missed the 1A0C on 60m. I do not do FT8 and he only gets on when NA has NO propagation. San (

Jun11 00:44 Oh yes, Petr... most of my last 10-15 "new ones" on 60m were result of a SKED on CW with mainly FT8 DX stations in AF and EU. They were nice to try CW for me. I made a $ donation to them. HI ... San (

Dec30 22:53 Lo principal es que deseo que la estación DX escuche TODOS los modos, principalmente CW y FT8. Muchos jamones NO operan FT8. Hago RTTY pero no muchos operadores RTTY de 60 m. Por lo tanto, sólo SSB y CW aquí. San (
Dec30 22:46 Fernando Estoy de acuerdo. Si NO hay señales SSB o CW y SOLO FT8, entonces llamaría. Pero si no fuera un nuevo DXCC de 60 m para mí, no volvería a llamar en ningún modo a menos que nadie llamara al DX. HI HNY también para ti. San (
Dec30 19:53 certainly, I prefer a human to human QSO. NEVER QSO thru a PC. BVut very hard to find CW/SSB stn. HNY RP, YY de EA8AK (

Dec05 01:54 RRR rp. The DX station should know if FT8 shows -10 to 0 db that CW is OK to go to. CW 200-400 cycles reads -10 to 0 dB all OK. hi San YY (
Dec05 01:51 RRRR rp, I agree with you. If a signal on FT8 is -10 to 0, then it IS readable on narrow CW from 400-200 cycles. The DX station should know if he gives a -1 to -3 that CW is OK to switch to.. 73 and HNY.. San (
