Ionosphere was so nicely polished on Saturday and it even reflected the
small amount of RF going straight upwards...

I thought I was hearing voices when SU1SK answered me in the huge Sunday
pile-up :-)

  A couple of times this weekend while on 10 meters, I heard myself
  after I let the mike key up.  Twice I heard "5903" and it was my
  voice.  I read somewhere that a big station used to hear his
  signal bounced off the moon, but he was using a huge 4 antenna
  stack.  I'm only using a 2 element monobander at 30 feet and 100
  watts so no way do I think I could do that.  Could I hear myself
  LP or something?  Did anyone else notice that phenomenon?  73
