In the U.S., regulations permit CW operations throughout the amateur bands. That makes the phone section of a band look tempting when the CW/digital part of the band is busy with a contest. I wonder if my friends and I can reasonably have our scheduled QSO in the phone part of the band when the CW/digital part is busy.
- Is it acceptable to conduct a CW QSO in the phone part of a band?
- If so, what are good operating practices to avoid interfering with SSB operators?
