 solar cells at night, I love it  :evil6:  Mine has the world band as well.   cool to listen to the stuff i can't understand. reminds me of at night when i was a kid at home, my dad did the whole ham radio thing, and all that, I could hear him in his den talkin to people all over, and listen to the atomic clock , that was cool !

never had a ham....but i did the same thing as a kid......being able at night to turn on AM and pick up atlanta...chicago...NYC...cleveland....from vermont was AWSOME...

thought it was the coolest thing...and still listen to WBZ..WSB..WCBS....most of the northeast and a good chunk of the midwest from NC ....

glad im not the only nerd here....LMAO

i take it skipping on a cloudy night means bouncing signals off the clouds to pick up someone else better?

i dont know much about hams....but im starting to get very interested.....if its anything like using the CB...i just might go get one....

Yes, the signal inherently goes " in a straight line, the curvature of the earth causes it to fade as the distance grows, so during times of heavy moisture, and or storms around the world, depends on when , and where you can get signal.

Oh yes, you use those channels w/ no license and you won't like it at all!

The radios they use today, are highly sophisticate, bad ass digital VFO's that can go in-between the in-between channels,not like we did it , old tube stuff. You can listen to the air planes talk, and alot more, your not supposed to, and many of the radios have them blocked out, but depending on hoe good you are, or who you know, that can be fixed.

Yes , you have to be careful what frequency your on.

  I never personally got into it much, so my knowledge is limited.  So I can't say much on the things.  I did have a " mobile " hooked up in the truck at one point, I traded it for a moonraker antenna, I can't believe the guy did the trade, but he did.  :smile2:
