Subject: Station loading 14.200 without modulation

Very often "Experimenters" are loading 14.200 for a long time.

There is no way to tell them ... "There is no sound on yr transmission".

Eaven wait and try to tell them is not working.. 14.200 refuses to accept the PTT "Send" button.

All other frequeny´s are working fine ... I doe not understand the bugg.

It's not always that station's fault.
There is a bug on the server where a station becomes a ghost for up to half and hour.
It happens if their internet gets disconnected while they are transmitting.

If you can hear them snoring or their TV, it is their fault because they left their mic on.

We will soon have a fix for both these problems.

It bothers me when I hear these innocent people are receiving rude emails.

If 14.200 gets tied up, just relax and move to 14.201 temporarily.

Subject: 14.200 tied up

Hello all.What a shame that people get so wound up about "calling channel" being blocked for short periods. Real HF doesn't have a calling channel, so this is really only on this programme as an aid to operating, and finding other hams. I still feel that this is a magical system, with much potential. Folks told me " it's ok at first,but eventually you will tire of it .....not so.... Regards to all, relax,and enjoy...73's Des
