Re: AO-51 QRP channel



I heard 3 stations besides myself on the pass 2 hours ago and managed to use
up the whole pass 'chatting' because of the lack of stations.  I didn't hear
many transmitters without ears on the pass either.  I'll be more of the
passes this week due to the lack of activity to "tune up" more JOTA
stations.  Hope to hear you on.
