Re: 6 Meters

As Lee stated, the 6 meter repeaters and nets in the area are all FM.  There is some activity occasionally on the SSB side, but you could listen for days and not here anything!

From my understanding, which is often wrong, most SSB work is weak signal DX, around 50.100 to 50.300!

Houston has a couple of very active 6meter repeaters, and I believe one is Echolink capable.

Hope this helps!
