Operator running cw here at my place Friday night (10m test) reported having
a DL call in and working him on a southwest path.  I do not recall the exact
time this qso was made but off the top of my head it was about 0240z.  This
was most certainly unexpected.

> As long as we are discussing strange openings.  How about 10 or 15 meters
at around 0400 to 0500z beaming due south and hearing and working UA0 and
VK6.  I first found this opening long after the bands had died to SA and VK
while operating W4AXE.  I later asked the operators of W3MSK and W4BVV about
it and they said "Yeah we know it exists and I guess now you do too."   I
will try to scratch my memory for some more of these odd ones.  I remember
also LP openings on 10 and 15 to the mid east and even into Europe around
0500 to 0600 z but these were really rare into Florida.
