    Ah! Thank you for dispelling the notion that I was delusional in my observation. ;)

    If a book isn't in the stars, might I suggest a blog, or better yet, a podcast. Your musings should be enjoyed by more than just a handful of radio enthusiasts.

    You gotta love Ch 19 these days. It is a landscape eerily similar to Cormac McCarthy's The Road with a good dose of National Lampoon's Vacation thrown in. A strangely hypnotic world not unlike that inhabited by dear old Bob in Masked and Anonymous. A carnival side-show tent one just can't help but peek inside. And more. :ROFLMAO:

    Well put. I’m not consciously borrowing from anyone, so the brain must be finding easily recalled impressions. Some places in the USA are stranger than others. Words similar. but something else in the air.

    38 lsb has been regular the last couple of days, contact with 624 Jamaica like he was a local and a few others before I had to get back to work. Conditions keep getting better!

    So many stations that I do not know what they are saying coming in from Central & South America on USB, LSB, AM, FM on channels 1-40.

    Same thing on higher & lower frequencies as well. o_O Can't getaway from them...sounds like an invasion. We need to build an RF Border Wall. :whistle:

    Great day (for me here in NC) to turn the radio off and on to something else.
