Nice 10 m opening this afternoon

Wow, 10 m is back! 🙂 We had a very nice opening into North America this afternoon & early evening lasting for about 5 hours! Propagation forecast looked rather bad for today but luckily it was entirely wrong. 😉 Ten opened up nicely as far as to the mid-west with Colorado being the western-most state I heard. Signals were very strong, i.e. 100 watts plus dipole stations from Michigan and all along the East Coast were easily hitting the S9 mark on my K3’s calibrated s-meter. Our big 6 ele OWA Yagi up 18 m high certainly helped a bit but anyway, always nice to reach across the pond on 10 m. Now let’s all keep our fingers crossed for conditions to hold thru the season. Next weekend has the WWDX-RTTY contest where we all could use some nice condx, right? Having the West Coast open up would of course be even better. 😉 By the way, 15 m was still open around local mid-night here … all very promising!
