    TN-99 here to report that in my neck of the woods I have heard DX on 27.385 kHz LSB from Solomon's Island, Okinawa. From my QTH in TN I could hear Calf.,Washington State respond back. These two locations I have never heard before. The weather had major storm over mid US so the bounce was in place with these conditions. Not long after Jamaica came in talking to NY. Todays report is TX talking back to TN as well AR station calling CQ. On the two long RX I hope there is some one who heard this call. The operator had trouble with his english but it was plain. And yes, I have tried to fake others out on calls but only stations in my own town who I knew. Those operators are silent keys now but their memory live's on.

    Yeah it gets crowded sometimes. Past day or so I've gotten lots of really strong stations. Problem is they all key together so it gets hard to pick one out.

    I heard a few more people come in and call back to me, but Chesapeake Bay dominated my receive for a lot of the evening and they covered everybody up. One or two I even responded to, but then the channel turned into a giant clusterf***, so I couldn't hear them.

    It always makes you feel good to get good reports from distant stations.

    Have had several people tell me I sounded excellent. Had one guy tell me "Don't change a thing" and "You're walkin' the dog". Makes you feel good when I get reports like that because it makes me feel like all the time I spent buying the radio, trading for the linear, soldering my own coax connectors, rigging up the pole and properly grounding and setting up my antenna, it makes me feel like it was all worth it to be able to talk to somebody hundreds or thousands of miles away and have them tell me that what I did is working good.

    Have had a good day so far, been on the radio about 30 minutes or so, most of the skip seems to be coming from Florida. Heard one guy from Barbados, but he was distant and seemed a bit muffled and I couldn't get back to him.

    6. Jun. 2014 812 38 LSB (27.385 Mhz) Single Side Band North Florida
    6. Jun. 2014 OP803 38 LSB (27.385 Mhz) Single Side Band Pensacola, FL
    6. Jun. 2014 WT159 38 LSB (27.385 Mhz) Single Side Band Tallahassee, FL
    6. Jun. 2014 159 38 LSB (27.385 Mhz) Single Side Band Florida Panhandle Using a Uniden Bearcat 980 with a 36” Lil' Wil' magnet mount antenna

    I thought it was awesome that 159 in Florida was able to shoot skip back to me with a 36" Lil' Wil' antenna. That's pretty awesome. He was good and loud too. He would fade in and out a little, but I attribute that to it being a mobile, so he could have been moving around and had nearby obstructions, but overall he was good and loud with clear audio.

    Just heard you faintly, conditions seem to be shifting for me from the pan-handle to the Daytona Beach area. Heard you once, but then faded out.
