I understand the first paragraph but maybe I don't know what is meant by
I have worked nothing but 75 for several decades off and on and it seems
that it is pretty constant. During the day I can hear and usually work
stations withing about 200 miles radius.
At night I can usually hear but not necessarily work the East Coast,
West Coast and everything in between including what I could during the day.
Having said that, this morning we had a round table with folks on both
sides of Lake Michigan and one guy on the other side could not be heard
by those on his side be we on this side could. Not sure how far apart
they are but probably 50 miles but I could talk to guys 50 miles from me.
So.... just what is short skip?
