Haha... I understand. I turn my radio on as soon as I get home every day and then I get busy and don't have the time to talk whenever I DO hear someone. So yeah, just a tease..
Today, I had the time to turn it on and actually talk and listen in.

My radio room is next to my bath room and bedroom so when I'm upstairs doing something I turn it on for entertainment and being nosy to see if it is rolling but like we say it breaks your heart if you can't set there. LOL

I have noticed that I get Texas a lot anymore and I never use to hear Texas before. As a matter of fact I had about a 1/2 hour freeband chat with Austin TX. guy from another forum last Sunday. Calls himself the Dog or USDA. Freeband is real cool because you don't get interrupted.

Yes Sir, I've found chatting on freeband is nice and quiet!

Maybe some Sunday if we do it again we'll give you a shout. What big town you close to? With DX being more dependable it is easier to chat on freeband. Most of the times I have projects to work on so I have to set time aside.

One question would you be able to freeband with a Texas neighbor or would that be too close?
Anywhere in Texas would be too close for DX. I'm in San Angelo, which is about 200 miles west of Austin. Much easier talking to you in PA. Haha.. But I'm definitely up for it whenever you, or anyone else is. Undertaker, here on the forums ia also here in San Angelo.

Well shoot, we're planning to move further south in a couple of years and actually have San angelo or abilene in mind. Never know, we might end up in San Angelo too! At least we could all talk on Am then.

Yeah, San Angelo sounds really nice. I would like to visit sometime when we are scoping out retirement locations.

Contacts with Georgia, Alabama, and way up to British Columbia Canada!! All over the place!!!
Heck yeah it's pretty awesome isn't it! It's been great here the last few weeks too. Yesterday was like a good day of fishing, had a full log just in the evening after work. From east to west, north to south. It's pretty interesting how mother nature helps us out.

That 115 in Hawaii and Australia are booming tonight!
