    I live in CO and I have not heard any ssb or anything else except local. And that's on different radios, base and mobile. Is this common?

    11 meters flat lined about mid July in the Texas Panhandle. It all has to do with propagation so for the time being it would be pretty normal. All through spring it was pretty alive though.

    I just scanned the bands and I heard no superb owl either. Not even a duck, mud or otherwise. I’m close to SC and I believe their hunting season just started so the animals are probably trying to stay on the down low.

    Down here in "The Republic of Texas", Snipe Season started yesterday. Not even a Snipe Peep to be heard. Even on the Lower 38.

    Nothing but local stuff up here. Absolutely no Skip. I do the CQ CQ CQ daily on 10 meters, and its just crickets. I only have 2m,10m, and 11 meter capability. Be nice to have a decent QSO every month or 2. Radio and antenna sysyem are in good working order. Guess I'll have to get a Real radio, so I can stay interested in the hobby. That isn't going go happen soon, so I might as well quit bitching about no conditions.
    I don't talk on cb ch 6, but it is a guide to conditions, and for a long time its been silent, at least it is here. Just ranting I guess.

    Roger that, at least it was something. Heck I'd be happy with that. I can guarantee that if there was a ridiculous 10 meter contest (even in poor conditions) those frequencies would come alive. I'm sure people are out there listening, but I reckon their to scared to key the Mic!
