All frequencies are + or - 10kHz.
SKCC members who use bugs are encouraged to make higher speed calls/CQs 2 KHz above the calling frequencies.
SKCC members who prefer QRS (sending slowly) are encouraged to make calls 2 KHz down from the calling frequencies.
The Elmer frequency for beginning operators is 7114 KHz. It's a safe haven for CW newcomers to get on the air. All Elmers or anyone who wants to help are encouraged to monitor the frequency and work the beginners.
