Splits

9m2zak splits with 9g5tt

The terms split is used when a station is tx on one fre, but listening on another. this procedure is common when many stations are trying to get through to a single station, such as a rare DX station.

You can tell that a station is working split when you hear the station contacting other stations but you cant hear those station responses....

It can also work the other way around:sometimes you tune in a pileup of stations trying to contact a DX station but you arent able to hear the DX station responses.

Typically, the DX station is split listening fre is a few khz above the tx fre. The station being called gives instructions such as "listening up 5". The former means he is listening for stations 5 khz above his tx fre. Example, 14.195 to 14.200 khz.

To "work split", set one of your radio main tuning controls (called VFOs, which is means Variable Frequency Oscillator) to the tx fre and other to the rx fre. These usually referred to as "VFO A" and "VFO B".

Set up the radio to listen where one VFO is set and tx on the other. Read your rig manual carefully so that u do this properly. If u accidently tx on the wrong VFO, u interfere with DX station.

This method is the easiest way to working split, but it not the only one, u can also establish the tx and rx fre as memory selections on your radio, and then jump between memories. dont bother trying to dial back and forth, u wont be quick enough. With either method, practice for a while first, before trying it out on the air. Gud luck and gud dx.
