Re: 40 & 80m

It's not just 40 & 80 that I wonder about...

I have been shocked how little activity there has been on 10 meters this
Summer. With the E-skip season in full swing (such as it is -- pretty poor
this year, actually), one wonders why there isn't more activity up there.

I'll get onto 10 whenever it's open and run a CQ or two, and almost never
get any response. Many of the states workable on 10 during the E-skip
season are hard indeed during the balance of the year -- especially QRP, as
I operate (It's pretty tough to work backscatter off an attic dipole @ 5w)
Boy, I would love to work KY, IN, or GA on 10m QRP -- still lookin'.

And 6m? I have never heard a signal on 6. Maybe I'm not looking at the
right time.

Oh, well... still several weeks left in the Season. Maybe I'll get lucky.

73s all,

Peter Baskind
