Yeah there seems to be a lot of skip right before noon on 11 meters in the last few days. Guessing it's some sporadic E activity given the low solar flux. Kind of nice to work some skip when the band is so damn dead the rest of the time besides the local weirdos and truckers.
Using my homemade EFHW mounted 30' up which has the same performance as an Antron/Solarcon A99, I get activity across all 40 channels when skip comes in. At the peaks I switch to the freeband frequencies and those can become quite clogged too. Helps to have an actual CB and antenna designed for the band, but ch. 6 is always a reliable indicator to see if the band (including 12 and 10m) is opening up.
Oddly I have yet to hear anyone on 10m besides some CW. CB 11m on the other hand lights up like a Christmas tree.

I'm not saying aliens are in the radio, but aliens definitely are in the radio.
