    Had a mini skip with 105 in Arizona. Also heard 163 “pay attention” come into SoCal.

    That's one of the bonuses of living in AZ. Too far to hear him on groundwave, too close to hear him on skip.

    Lots of Italian, Spanish, German, Russians blasting in this side of the pond today. Talked to Germany for a few minutes coming in very strong and then the groundwave came in and swallowed him up. Talk about fade away and radiate!! Unusually got a contact into Eastbourne in the UK for five minutes and then we both got swallowed up in the groundwave swell. We're beside the UK and its very hard to get any contacts with the cb'ers over there at the best of times. Maybe things are improving skip wise. On Saturday night last I heard more people on the air on ssb than in a long time. Lots of old school cb'ers returning to the hobby from a hiatus of 20 years or more. Its cool for cats!!!

    Last night (Sunday) LSB38 was so hot, it was pretty much impossible to get a word in. So no DX confirmed, but im sure someone was trying to get back at me just didnt hear them in the scamble.

    Re old time CBs getting back - Yes, thats me! More like a 27 year hiatus though! Funny enough when I heard out of state calls as a kid, I never knew what was happening and now its 100x more fascinating that I have SOME understanding on whats happening re skip.
