Logically, ten 
shouldn't have been open at all, but there he was. I suspect the 
propagation mode was multi hop sporadic E, but I can't say for sure. 
Sporadic E would have required about four hops. F2 would have needed 
at least two hops but more likely three provided the night time 
ionization was high enough. I doubt it was however.
.....and JT's have come through here at midnight from time to time during WW, 
near the peak of the cycle.  Strange things do happen on ten.  It is a fun 

Two years ago I had an enormous hour of 255 at the beginning of the 10 meter 
contest.  It was a mix of e skip to the North (W8, W2, etc.) mixed with W6,W7 
and JAs.  See you all this weekend on 10.
