Good link to explain "Skip"
YULETIDE RADIO OPERATORS POEM
It came upon a midnight clear
I was so tired I could hardly hear
137, burning some watts
(Don't know how many, just know they're a lot)
I grabbed my mike and said: "Go ahead"
137 said: "Woody, why aren't you in bed?"
Now fully awake I thought I'd be flip,
and said "I'm staying up to hear 'Ol Santa Skip"
The radio went silent, almost seemed dead
I could almost hear him thinking ("Is he daft in the head")
And then came the DX, right through my speaker
Jay, in the desert was stronger not weaker
He was just leaving the diner that night
and thought most the signals would be just line-O-sight
Then Don blasted in, and I knew his Maco was fixed
'cause his signal was in-the-red (I think twenty-six)
Jeff, on the West coast, broke in for a few,
I felt like I was hearing a radio skip stew...
Night Eagle jumped in, he was no snoozer
Just tooling around in his new PT Cruiser.
Steve, down in Clute, jumped into the fray
and it seemed just like everyone had lots to say
Even Doug (101), and the "Fiddler" got on
and I got to rubbing my eyes - heck, it was now almost Dawn!
Then a strong voice came in loudly and called -
"Merry Christmas to Radio Operators, CB, Ham, and et. all"
