Default skip blowing in tonight. Anyone else?

not sure what is going on but I made several contacts on LSB channel 38 to CA and AZ out of CO. They said I was blowing them out over 20db. Even heard loads on 19 from all over.

Good to hear 11 meters is kicking! Where are you and where did you hear from?

I'm in Colorado and made multiple contacts in Arizona and California. Happen right around Sunset and continued with high levels for another hour or so

Finally, It's been pretty slow for the last month. Hoping it does a repeat of last spring or even around the holidays. That was awesome.

Started thinking that Roger finally shot Skip and killed him.

Every once in a while here i get stations from the great lakes area and the southern states. This is confirmed by beacons on the 10m band. Also the Canadian maritime provinces.

This proves the band still opens some times even if we are at the bottom of the solar cycle.
"Sporadic E" skip is just that: sporadic !

Yesterday, my son and I went to go do some audio work at the base chapel, and listened to someone in Mojave talking to someone in FL, on CH19. Switched to 38L, and heard some skip going on. Got my son and I to talking about CBs and HAM radios. When we got home, we tore my antenna apart, and rebuilt it. Needed to retune it anyways, from changing the spring out, which is why I didn't attempt to make contact with anyone, via skip.

PS: What do you all mean Roger That shot Skip? Skip who?

Been quiet here in the north east corner of Texas, it's giving me time to get my tower finished and the new radio shack is in the factory being built now.

Lots of skip coming in to my region this morning. All over the 40 channels.

It seems that sporadic "E" season is upon us. Stations coming in from a very limited area: Tenessee,Georgia,Carolinas.

Heard some activity on 10m and 6m also. All from the same area.

Not CB related by I noticed a bit of enhanced propagation all the way up on 144 mhz.

I haven't listened in on the 11m band for a long time. I started in 1962 with a 3-transistor walkie talkie, then moved up to a 5-channel Hallicrafters CB-20 mobile in the 5th grade, then a into 23-channel Allied base/mobile in the 6th grade. Got into 11m SSB in the early 70s, then quit when I started college.

Had a brief stint again in the mid-80s, then got my Amateur license in the 90s (Extra class these days).

I still have some 11m radios ... most are old 23-channel tube radios and a quite large collection of HTs ... most of them are still in good working condition too.

Some of the guys on our UHF repeater as well as some of the HF guys have recently mentioned that 11m propagation was happening. I'm going to grab a couple Cherokee SSB HTs out of the garage and try them out next mountain camping trip

skip was in and out here yesterday, a lot of Carolinas. I didn’t have enough to get out, going to see what it’s like in a few hours

Are you getting any Spanish stuff? I have been getting some in the later part of the day. Does not sound local.

Since I got a galaxy dx959B and a decent antenna set up on the frieghtliner cascadia I've noticed a lot more skip. Sometimes I can talk back sometimes I cant mostly cause I moving. I dont get it shut down due to interference from other trucks at truck stops. It would be nice to be able t chat more on the skip but I got a ob to do. Now to get echolink to work properly on my tablet

Skip seemed to be kicking pretty good just now, 38L. Was listening to 725 (Boise?), 301 (Edwards AFB area), 1060, 1465, 426 (Idaho?), and a few others. I tried to call out, but my transmitter may be cooked.

"Desert Raven, 111, California City"

Ch19 was kicking pretty good, the other day. "Southern California," in Mojave, was calling out. "Sidewinder" was having a good time with it, too.

I don't really even like skip, nor do I like the "Superbowl" channel. I try to filter both out through gain. Anyone else? I guess i'm weird like that.
