    38 LSB Has Been Rolling

    The past couple days I've hit up 38 LSB and it has been rolling really good. Here's some of the people I've talked to. If you're on this list, thanks for coming back to me, 323 in east Kentucky wavin', :-)

    The one on the 24th with ?? in place of the DX number I was hesitant to include. I very clearly heard them call out my DX number and then fade out before I heard theirs, and couldn't tune them in over the other contacts. I decided to add them to my log book though because I did hear them call my DX # and location very clearly before they faded out.

    Also, if you hear me on here, I realize I may seem a little off frequency to some people. My clarifier has not been unlocked, so it's a receive only clarifier and I'm stuck at whatever frequency the 148 GTL is set to out of the factory, so if you had to tune me in to respond, I apologize.

    Edit: I've created a "CB Radios Hangout" group on Facebook. I've been a member of a few CB radio pages geared toward buying/selling/trading and a few other things, but I thought it might be nice to have a group to just post photos, say howdy, etc. You can check the group out at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1430...30130997250695

    38 lower side band. You need a radio with single side band mode to get these channels. Like the uniden 980. 38LSB is one of the more common channels on the cb band for dx'ing on SSB. The frequency is 27.385, lower side of the frequency. Hope this helps. God bless

    Your station sounds really good on SSB. The SSB relay in my linear was wanting to act up and trying to kick out on me in between words so I turned my box off and back on again, it might be a little dirty cause' that fixed it. Anyway, thanks for coming back to me again 222, :-)

    222 you pretty much dominated my radio all afternoon on 38 LSB. I think almost every time you keyed down I could hear you and one other guy in Palm Beach very clearly.

    Made a few more contacts, including a few very clear stations when conditions started to fade out. Sending a wave out to these guys I spoke to today.

    Afred56, keep trying!! More contacts will follow. I always sit and listen for a while and the strongest station in my receive is who I call. Usually works well that way. If you don't already have one, may I suggest a log book as well. Nothing better than logging all the contacts you make. Some days I can't keep up lol. Some days it's slow. Patience is a big helper though, like is said, wait for the loudest stations and call to them. JMO. Glad you are enjoying yourself. God bless.
