Well I am pretty stoked, I took a walk when mother nature told me to turn back home otherwise I would be squatting in somebodies bushes. Anyway I got home, heard Australia in the recieve and made 4 contacts to Australia. Two of them were real good plenty of signal! First contact with Australia from my base station. First one in about 6 years as well. This is with a Sirio boomerang antenna mounted at just 6 ft high. Well that and few hundred watts.

Yesterday evening I had all but given up on skip, however I made some quick contacts to Maine and New Hamshire on 37 LSB from central Texas with just my Lincoln 2 in the semi. I heard Australia in there but could not make contact.

You wouldn’t believe the number of grim-faced truck drivers who just barely make that “dragging one leg” gimp to the building. Neither too fast nor too slow. (And usually make it).

Usually.

Lots of skip this afternoon. On ch 38 lsb I talked to Florida, Georgia and Alabama. And then the blah blah guy started. So then I went back to ch 20 and soon had a direct line to Alabama. I talked to 101 and 601 then talked to Train Man, @Unit 75. Good to talk to you sir, I tried earlier when I heard you. But I guess mother nature made me wait my turn. It was worth waiting for though, I think I almost caused a pile up. Talking on my Cobra 148 with kl203 and star duster in the garage, I was working on the wife's truck and several times heard people calling me after I quit trying and started working on the truck again. I picked up the mic several times with a greasy hand so as not to miss a contact. Man, this DX stuff can be a lot of work! Haha!

Eight, Zero, Eight on my 148 Waving... Break, Break.....

  • No one is chatting at the moment.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.
  • @ Toll_Free:
    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
