Totally get ya!! We have life to deal with and with poor conditions, well radio goes to the back burner. It’s like a sine wave…peaks and valleys.It's been quiet just on the AM trucker side of things, not much for skip. Haven't powered up the base in a couple of days so not sure what ssb is doing in thos part of the world. Kind of going through some burnout in several of life's departments and not much for radio motivation.
