    Had a great time talking to you and the other guys, I wish my phone didn't ring right then. It was my wife calling to say that supper was ready. She takes care of her mother who lives down the street. My wife fixes all the meals at her mother's house because it's just easier that way. With the DX improving, I hope to talk to you again soon.

    Great idea, and we sure could use it tonight for sure. I understand that everyone is pumped up with the bands opening up lately, but seems radio etiquette is a thing of the past. Tonight I was talking with Wyoming, that's extremely rare skip for Arkansas. People that heard me knew I was in the middle of a conversation, even if they couldn't hear Wyoming. But I was hammered by a ton of folks trying to make a dx anyway. Be nice if folks would wait for an appropriate time to call out instead of keying up knowing they are busting in. Again, I understand the enthusiasm to talk skip after years of static, but a little manners made the difference between me replying and ignoring.

    I get the excitement of skip coming in but if stations want to have a lengthy QSO they should go to a less popular place once contact has been made. Just my newb $.02

    I agree, especially crowded evenings as it is here this evening. It's booming tonight though

    Sporadic E skip has been cooking most days for the past 3 weeks or so on 11 m SSB in my neck of the woods.................
    I check DXMaps.com to see if 10m is propagating across the Big Pond. If it is then things usually fire up on 11m also. Seems to peak around Grayline time.

    Channel 38 was busy here yesterday evening, as were most channels. Talked some great DX on 37 and 39, as 38 had a train wreck rolling in and out. Talked to many operators in the northern heart land of this great nation, including two female operators in different states. Maybe I should get my wife a CB? :whistle:

    455monte,
    yourdictionary.com/greyline says it better than I can. Check out DXMaps.com for maps showing the grayline location for any time of day.

    Just heard 101 Los Angeles calling CQ on 38. He didn't hear me, but someone in Kansas City got back to him. Now we got some rag chewers from New Jersey......

    Hard to work much DX from NC today. Signals fade in and out quickly. All contacts I’ve made have been short lived and from varied directions.

    Did manage one each to Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Texas.

    Three to California. One to San Francisco. One to San Diego. One to just CA…don’t know QTH.

    Heard one guy from Washington state…didn’t hear me.
