Re: 10 Meter Activity

I try to check 10m almost daily and I agree with Dan ...mostly hiss and noise :-(   ....

Guess you're getting something out there in AZ, but if I heard anything here in Illinois I'd be very surprised. Illinois probably has taxed propagation here and you won't hear anything unless you pay !

Well, I check out 10 meters daily (including CQ’s on ssb, psk) and not a thing but hissing noise and has been that way for months, other than the occasional big contests and then 10 meters seems to awaken!! Amazing how that works.  But after the contest, it is usually back to hissing noise.  I see so many others say the same thing from different parts of the country.  Where is all this supposed 10 meter activity anyway!!!

While everyone is focused on easy QSOs (FT8 on 17 & 20M), no one except for a few dedicated PropNET operators continue to put out PSK31 packets on 10-Meters (Plus a couple of other bands).
The past few days, there has been a few openings (Fall/Winter Es). They occur for 1-4 hours, usually late morning to solar noon and again late afternoon into the evening.  The Eastern half has had good conditions and out west we really only had one good opening the past 3 days.  Again these are short lived and not great openings, but still better than nutin'.

Here is what the PropNET people have seen the last 3 days.
 Also attached a PNG file.

I have heard everyone rave about WSPR and Skimming CW, FT8 & JT65.
But these guys still prevail after all these years.
Put out a simple CQ (CQ CQ de KA5DWI KA5DWI k) and we will post it if heard.
Also many of us announce on our transmissions that our ROBOT is turned on. Call us 3X3 and we will answer you.
Fall/Winter Es are off to a good start. I sure hope it continues.
