Tip#1 - Listen out on ch 35, that is where there is also lots of guys from Australia and also turn that MODE selector to the upper side once and awhile.
Tip#2 - Ch 33 (usb) is the main talk channel for the 224 div. If you hear a lot of chatter and can't understand what they are saying, then you have found the Kiribati Islands.
I don't know what state you are in, but if the conditions are there for you, give the channels I mention a try.
Always nice to catch really good skip
those boys sure talk funny! they have an accent that makes my Texas drawn seem normal!! Thats more than a few mile contact for sure.
I also run a mobile station....Mobiles are not power houses due to antenna size and height but it works well from here in south Texas. if conditions are right a mobile will get any contact i can hear most of the time. during big pile ups sometimes the bases have a stonger signal into the DX but a with little waiting i can normally get the contacts. i listen sometimes for 5-10 minutes and as the piles clear out and the high wattage guys get the contacts i make a call and more than not get the hook up.
We often go to 38 LSB to call you guys, but lately there has been so much noise, everyone talking at the same time, signals seem to get lost in the mud.
If you are hearing strong Hawaiian stations (59 36 comes to mind) Australia, New Zealand and the south pacific are almost certainly around.
