    Just talked too a guy in the Out Back. Loud and clear, very good modulation. I like shooting skip every now and then.

    I was running a barefoot mobile in my deisel wagon for a while thet would hit down in the sandpile from the lincoln. In my pick-up truck skip talking is fairly easy. I'm with you though, it is pretty fun to do. Who needs a phone?

    Just curious, what freq. were you on?

    Lets see...this morning I worked the following on 10 Meters. USB:
    Portugal, France,Germany, England, St. Pierre, & Algeria

    On CW I worked:
    Liutheunia, Croatia, Yogoslavia, Iceland, Poland, So. Africa, Denmark

    That was probably within one hour. 12 Meters was really cooking /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
