I am usually catching them on 27.555usb.

The stations in Norway hear a lot of us from the states around 1:00pm west coast time, not only on 555 but ch 38 too. They call for us over here, but not hardly anyone hears them. So I always have the beam pointing over the pole in the early afternoon to catch them.

I also will catch several from Finland at this time. Yesterday, it was just about 1:00 in the morning for the one station in Norway when we talked, he was putting a S7 on me and he was RX me at S7-8

That's great. I wish I had more time to mess around on the radio.

"Long distance DXing" ... as opposed to short distance DXing?

Yap - I consider short dxing out to the 3000 mile range and beyond that to be long. Which in that short dx range, it's very easy to work even in a mobile.

But some do consider long dxing to be anything outside their own state or province - even if it's only 1000 miles.

I don't know for sure, but maybe there is a proven theory, if there is any difference between the "short & Long" dxing.
