I have a proposal for a "new" operational mode for NB.
The traditional QSO using USB in all frequencies is half duplex. This is due to the fact that is impossible to Rx during Tx. Using USB is possible two stations or more to talk at the same time without interfering each other.
The proposal is that two or more stations talk together like a telephone conversation. Of course callsigns must told every few minutes according to ham radio laws.
This will provide a more "natural" mode of communication that is impossible to implement with out QO100.
Sorry - I don't get it.. I'm confused..
Isn't this what is already mandatory according our NB Transponder Bandplan and Guidelines which state:
--> Full-Duplex operation is mandatory
Thus, your equipment shall be designed for Full-Duplex, i.e. RX and TX capable at the same time,.
Some operators do already practice that, even in larger rounds. When two people start to talk together at the same time, the other will stop or the 3rd. person will listen to both of them at the same time..
For that reason since the launch of QO-100 we have always advocating to build or buy full-duplex equipment. Unfortunately some vendors constantly ignore this request,
However - sometimes you also hear people talking many minutes over each other. They may not have that capability our just turned their audio down while talking, not to get confused because of the delay..
But anyway, good that you bring up this discussion again.
