The County Hunter Web Forum

The place to discuss issues affecting county hunting, or to just ask questions

Subject: activity down

Message: Probably several reasons:

1) Less overall population of hams distributed throughout the country- migration to the cities - many counties have no active hams.

2) Rise of VHF activity and repeaters.....and less HF mobile activity.

2) Poorer propagation - the best sunspots and solar activity were 3-50 years ago

4) And most important...rise of electronic confirmations for awards. LoTW made DXCC, WAS and other activities 'easy' compared to getting QSL cards. Very few interested in written confirmations of 3077 counties.
