    Someone has to get the guys running the HAARP facility in Alaska into radio so they'll stop turning the propagation switch off.;)

    That's why you have to be careful which expert you choose to believe. Just because some are wrong does not mean that others cannot be right in their predictions. Same as climate change. While it may not be an exact science history has proven that for the most part they can predict within reason what the next cycle will bring. Everything goes in cycles and trends.

    Please do not go there. I am certainly NOT right all the time nor do I profess to be. I do however have a lot of experience in communications in general but as for certain things especially CB related I am in the dark ages. Personally I find it a sore point when people say I am always right. It goes waaay back to grade school and jealous schoolmates.

    It was only meant to be a complement.

    Always being right has absolutely nothing to do with being smart or having knowledge. It has everything to do with not professing to know something you don't. Having the answer, being silent, and saying I don't know, all make you right.

    That's why I say,"It's better to ask questions than to try to bluff your way through it and get caught with your ignorance hanging out!"

    There has been some activity on 38 here, it's just weak. I just heard a 505 call, but he said I was way off frequency. I would normally chalk that up to his station, but I was told the same thing on friday. So, I haven't actually made a contact lately, but at least there is still a chance.

    ETA, as soon as i typed this I had a few minute qso with 1500 in California. He confirmed I was off frequency, but said it wasn't too far off.

    And it was taken as that but I don't want the impression that is the way I myself think. Like I said it goes back a loooong way to grade school and being picked on for being at the top of my classes. Next topic! :cool:

    That is why I haven't replaced my base antennas.........no locals talk on the radio any more. Skip is fun at times but I just lost interest.
    When I am in the truck, nothing but crickets. LOL

    Yeah, I remember one summer when I took Analytical Geometry as a summer course for advance credit. there were only 10 students in the class.
    The teacher said he would grade the class on a sliding scale with the highest score on the final exam being the defacto 100 %.

    Well, after the final exam results were in, 7 people failed, 2 received a "C" and I got an "A"after I aced the final..
