ROS

Post by bozzy »

I have been recently been getting back into transmitting, spent the last 20-30 years just listening.

About 2 weeks ago, I discovered ROS data mode and had a go using my new Icom 7300 and received my first E-QSL card on 11m.

Last 2 days, ROS has been completely dead, even on PSK reporter, completely nothing although RS8 is still busy.

Any reason for this as ROS was very active but now dead?

Regards
Bozzy
