weathers changing, skips in..

Post  Termite on Tue Mar 08, 2011 10:30 pm

for those with normal 40 rigs, this may not interest you..

but those funny sounding voice on CB, russian women on AM and off frequency FM..
on SSB and AM countries heard (and worked) Australia, USA, lebanon, thailand, uraguay, argentina, brazil,
mostly south america's bahamas, the states, loads of russia and even africa's..

the skips rolling so dig those old AM and SSB rigs out and give it a whirl..

i've worked the US on an old stag 357 and superstar 360..!!
ok i have 500w and a 4 element beam but hey..!!

i've heard people working DX on wire aerials, and 10w...

so get on there, work that DX..!!
