Can You Hear Me Now? – Receiver Trumps Transmitter

 

Can you Hear Me Now?  WWII Russian Antiaircraft audio Team at work.

 

Working this last week (actually very little radio work) on Washington Island Wisconsin (WI-001L) it again became so very obvious that if an amateur’s station can hear the other guy, then you have a great chance of being able to work them.

It isn’t transmitter power you need first, but that ability to identify the other station, hear any ongoing conversation or pile-up, and then make your decision when to hit the transmit key.

If you can’t hear them, you can’t work them, right?
