    By far the most popular band is 20 meters, followed by 40 meters. ---Layne AE1N

    I second that. 20 metres / 14 MHz is the most popular on the HF bands because you can't nearly always get some decent long distance contacts.

    considering the current band conditions, I do most of my early morning and early evening operating on 40 meters, during daylight hours it is mostly 20 meters.
