    I talked all over the world with my IMAX infamously ten feet off the ground, my uniden Madison/silver eagle, and about 300 watts. I prefer SSB. And enjoy making contacts above channel 40. 36, 37, 39 and 40 are good substitutes for 38. Unless you wanna experience what it feels like to be a patient at your local crazy house. On AM 28 is OK. 73

    nat19,
    You asked the question how to talk "skip"?

    Well, with enough power anyone can talk "skip", but a good antenna is the best source.
    Listen a lot - learn to have good "conversational skills", you will have more people wanting to call you from all different parts of the world, if, you are good in speaking.

    Two years ago, I heard a operator make a call from Indonesia for DX. I keyed the mic and said "hello Aire". That operator responded back by calling out my first name and my call sign...boy was I ever surprised, for the last time that we had ever talked was 16 years ago! But he remembered who I was by the way that I talked on the radio.

    If you can listen a lot to how "general class" ham operators talk, you will see that most of them are very skilled in how they communicate - so remember that old saying; "listen to the wise"!
