The “Rare Ones” Changing Operating Frequency

The “Rare Ones” of New Orleans are changing the primary operating frequency from 7.260 MHz to 7.275 MHz. The change was due to a foreign short wave station broadcasting on 7.260 MHz during the operating hours of the “Rare Ones” of New Orleans Round Table. Of course, the “Rare Ones” maybe anywhere on the Amateur Bands!
