      Skip refers to radio-wave propagation off the ionosphere.  The skip zone is the area that a radio wave "skips over" when it bounces off the ionosphere.. You usually can't hear a signal from a station when you're in its skip zone.

      Whats Skip? 

      I thought skip was when your ether too close or to far away from a station to hear them, so how can you hear them when your in the skip(zone)?
