    Thought I heard you yesterday day on channel 17 AM. I was checking in at a lime plant in Cleburne, TX yesterday morning and skip was rolling. I wanted to try call out but I don't think the other drivers or guy running the scales and loading trucks would have cared for it.

    Did anyone hear "Mark" on 38? Loud, loud audio from the sand pile talking to everyone, everywhere. "This is Mark, this is Mark, did you call me? This is Mark." Annoying as it was, everyone was calling Mark.

    That was how yesterday was for me, I could hear a lot of skip, but couldn't get anyone to call my numbers. Even when i got home and cranked up some heat, I only made two or three contacts.

    Today was pretty good this morning made quite a few contacts.

    In the big truck I run a old Uniden (president) grant with a rm 203 and a browning flat coil antenna. Somedays I talk to just about anyone I hear, well not really. But there are days I have no problem getting numerous contacts.other days not so much.
    I did try in my pickup with the Lincoln 2 and a Tram 3500 antenna. Once again no luck. But other days I have no problem getting out with that setup.

    Q
    I remember whoever it was said they were in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina. It was busy on the radio at the plant with drivers checking in so I didn't get hear much more, but it did sound like you. I guess you roam the frequencies too. I know some guys who don't stray away from just a couple of frequencies or so.
