Ch19 was kicking pretty good, the other day. "Southern California," in Mojave, was calling out. "Sidewinder" was having a good time with it, too.
Found out this morning that my transmitter is NOT cooked. Talked with MegaVolt(?) on CH19 for a while. (Ave K & 20th St W, out to about the state prison, c. 4.2 miles)

I’d figured mine was down on power for some reason, then I adjusted my power knob correctly again and got back out like I had been before. Seems my brother turned it down when he borrowed my truck and I just never noticed since I don’t has a meter in the mobile full time. Caught 76 out of VA yesterday evening. Mad Dog out of Bama was having audio difficulties it sounded like, 420 in Jersey owes me a new needle for my radio tho, he bent it back down here yesterday.

Well, I'm weird like that too in not liking skip. It does nothing for me, but it does something "to" me: it blocks out local on-the-road communications that I use the CB for.

Got some noise going again today. Hearing some activity on the Super Bowl Channel. Also heard what I believe was Wisconsin channel 38 lower sideband.

yeah, skip on 6,10 and 11 meters outstanding today. Not much shift in it either, I listened to the same people off and on nearly all day. Here in NC I heard stations in FL, AL, TX, LA, AL, IN, IL, MI, WI, ME
