remember that the lower the freq the longer the sound wave=greater distance...especially if theres a lot of solar activity they carry the signal up in the ionosphere especially in the summer where this freq operates on..but you should know that cause your a ham to:)

you heard this in TX? wow talk about some distance
This is fairly common on low-band. I live in Lincoln, NE. In the 80s I hooked my scanner up to an outdoors base station CB antenna. I was amazed at the skip I could pick up. I was hearing a medical dispatcher, somewhere with a Chicago or NYC accent.

You'll hear stories from others about pulling in skip on low-band. In fact, there is a thread around here somewhere, that has been picked up. Nebraska State Patrol is regularly on that list as they are on low-ban on the 42.0000's.

One Saturday I was doing PM on a low band garbage truck fleet and called out for a radio check. The response was, Go ahead radio service, this is radio service read you 10-2. I asked where he was, he was in Mass. and I was in Georgia. We chatted for 5 minutes and *poof* he disappeared.
