OK, so I finally got enough laundry done to sit down & try CQing for a few minutes in the CQ WW SSB. Running 500 watts to a 7-el tribander at 20m, I'm not the loudest signal on the band but I'm not a

Just in case you thought 10 meters would be pointless at the bottom of the sunspot cycle... I've got the day off from work. Got the rig squelched up on 29.62MHz. I am hearing the W1OJ repeater near B

Haven't worked much DX but the band was open to Texas well into the night - and again for about two hours this morning. (it was a lot better during CQ WW CW) Agreed. It would be interesting to see a

I'm with Gary on this. The joy of the 10M Contest is that it isn't *a* contest -- it's *two* contests. You don't really know which one you're going to get until it starts! This year, it was indeed a
