    He’s in his mobile but he also has a base radio. I’d just like to teach him the importance of trying to keep his signal on the frequency he’s attempting to talk on. I could ignore a channel or two of splatter, that would be a change and relief but all 40??

    Nothing but a few locals piling up here. Pretty quiet for the most on 28. Bowl is in and out.

    If you’re of a mind to do so, do a better job than I in identifying equipment and such.

    It really is uncanny how those girls get out.

    I’ve never not heard them approaching from 90-miles east on IH-40

    I don't bother when DX is like this. Sporadic E puts me over the edge.

    Call "CQ Europe" on 555 and 50 stations from Mississippi and Arkansas DYING to answer me. LOL.

    That’s as funny as it reads.

    Will have to remember it.

    Hmm, what’s a Lithuanian accent?

    There was a fair amount of activity yesterday in the afternoon. It came in ebbs and flows. I'd make contact with a station and then the four others trying to hail me would all walk over each other. 429 in Gettysburg, PA was one of those short lived contacts. I managed to do better with a QSY to LSB 39, where I was able to carry on QSOs with 409 in PA and 169 in Jonesboro, Arkansas. But the pile up had Virginia, Maryland, Ohio, Illinois, Alabama, Mississippi and a whole host of other states from the eastern and central parts of the U.S.

    Definitely a busy day on CB.

    Some dx tonight on 6, buy no other channels. coming from Hawaii to So. Cal. where I am. Showtime and Mr. California were called. If this dx keeps up I am going to upgrade my system. Who knows, it could be a fun ride up the solar cycle, which is an inverted Covid-19 Curve.

    38 lsb full of South Florida booming into Eastern Oklahoma, tonight and a few from the Carolinas. I made no contact with any of them, I waved my hand until I thought it would fall off, nothing, nada. I need to send my 2950 to LC after he's finished with my Madison, not sure it's even working right, it's about 26 years old.

    The band was booming here throughout late afternoon and evening, on both AM (6, 11, 19, 20, 21 and probably more) and SSB (35 through 40). I heard Florida, OH, PA, IA and maybe a few others. Made contact with 222 in IA from my mobile.

    Conditions were rough on 38 yesterday. Made a call out, had one station return, but so over modulated I couldn't understand him. Will try again today.

    Conditions were rough am too. 28 was a huge pile up all afternoon and into much of the evening. Pretty quiet out there atm but I expect that to change later.
