Anyone attempting to make contacts on 50.4?  I've been calling CQ for weeks and no returns.  In fact, it has been four years since I last made a contact on 50.4 outside a few locals.  I've been pointing the beam in all directions and am greeted with silence.

C'mon everyone, dust off those old Cleggs and Gonsets and get on the air!

It looks open to some degree.

I don't have anything workable on the band but if it's open for voice then someone should fire up if it's not too late tonite.

CQ CQ CONTEST

The June VHF contest is this weekend.
QSY down between 50.125 and 50.2 MHz and work the SSB stations. They won't even know you're on AM.  Cheesy They will just think you have too much carrier.
The band has been open almost every day since early May BUT, the mode of choice has been FT8.
I haven't heard or worked any AM stations on 6 meters for at least a year or two.

For a year or so, Ive heard a group in NE PA on 50.4, Sunday nights around 7:30pm local time.
