    Yeah, it's pretty much dead here. Time to go to bed for me, but I'll be listening tomorrow as it's a holiday here.

    I was wondering if I would see you posting here after the bottom dropped out. You were sounding good here. I heard you talking to several others before I was able to get through though. Amazing how much talking is going on, and on so many channels.

    I even found a local talking from right here in town that I had never heard before. We had a good conversation.

    It's always more exciting to talk to someone you "know" LOL

    I was out there to hollering away tonight. But made no contacts. Thought I might hear ya in there cause Michigan was swinging my way for a bit. Then it changed around and got TN, MO, and a few others.

    Just gotta keep hollering and standing by and someone will shout back our way.

    We'll connect one of these times, cause I call your sign a bunch of times during the day. I started about 9am this morning, but most of my contacts were out of North and South Carolina. But I have my ear tuned for Ottawa Valley and 309, so I would catch it if I hear it. :)

    Sometimes its more exciting to find a new local than shooting skip. We have a few local am guys but NO local ssb traffic.....unfortunately. used to have a bunch of old guys above 40 on .505 lsb...I think....but that was 15+ years ago....all long gone now. Anyways got Tn,Pn,Mi,Oh,Wi,Ny & Ontario. Band was wide open tonight! (y)

    Today was my best day. I got 16 really strong contacts and could talk to them from a minute to over ten minutes, and one guy tonight from after 8pm to almost 9pm. Most contacts last 20 seconds if that. LOL

    Mine always start on the East Coast, either North or South Carolina then New York and Georgia and around to Tennessee and Louisiana. Even head Sydney Australi several times, but didn't even try to get back. I also heard a guy in Ontario but didn't get his numbers.

    We are just going into the peak year of this sunspot cycle too, so it really ought to get good for awhile. :D

    I used to like back in the days going back now 15-20 years ago when I would be able to get into Manitoba and the east coast of canada. Those are much different conditions then what is the norm for around here.

    Those days should be coming back. Before I got this new radio, I was using the barefoot Uniden 980ssb and talked all over California, Florida, the islands, even heard Australia and New Zealand a few times. It's all about the skip, and that's all about the sunspots, which are becoming active again.

    Wow, skip is running wild here in Western Wisconsin. Talking all over the East coast and around to Louisiana and Texas. Even hear a few Ontario stations today.

    73's 058 Wisconsin

    Is this still a thing? I think a club would be great. If it's still on the table count me in.
