You can use the Internet to see who is on the air and also check out your station. I use several web sites to see find out what the bands are doing. These web site can help you predict who and where you might be able contact.
20M PSK Stations - Nov. 9, 2014 ~ 22:00UTC
I transmitted a CQ on 20M - I can then check out PSK Reporter to see who received. You have to setup PSK Report for your call - see below:
I have set up to reporter all the stations that received WB5CXC within the last hour.
Your station of record will show up as the symbol with‘L’ (your location) in it. You can click on a station and it will give you more details about the contact.
I clicked on a station up in Oregon - you can see the information from the Oregon Station in a Pop-Up. It tells the type of antenna or the model number of the antenna in use at the remote station, distance etc. Also notice the grey line, most of the receiving station are in the dark.
