Hi all, new member here and already have had a Qso with two Senators and one Tribune. Love this group and would like to know what is the best way to reach you folks on the bands. Is there normally someone on the air at certain frequencies? Is it best to call CQ SKCC or not? Etc,Etc. Thanks in advance for any advice. 73, John WD9IWC Skcc # 14998 :lol:

the best way to find
skcc members is listen to the SKCC "meeting" frequencies on each band that is open to your area. If you hear no activity try calling CQ on those frequencies.
List of frequencies is in the webpage. The next thing is going to the K3UK schedule page for SKCC members. That's a real time meeting page where members post short messages telling where they are operating.
73 from K8JD, SKCC 1395, Centurion 18, Tribune 12, Band Endorsements; 160, 80, 60, 40, 30M, 20, 17, and 10M
