    I drove 450 miles today, in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa. I called more that 10 times around large cities, and never heard a thing.
    Please people, Always announce what freq you are on when you call and then wait for a response. I watched people call and change frequency all in the same breath.

    I traveled from Phoenix to Albuquerque today with no luck with any one coming back! Some days are better than others. I will keep calling out.

    I have for the last 50 years been listening to 146.52, there's less activity now than ever even in the beginning. But every once in awhile you run across a good QSO, I have to encourage everyone to put out a call every 40 or 50 miles you might run across a fellow ham.

    Can't speak for other places, but around here 146.520 isn't monitored much, too many local repeaters.
