Here are some clips I made this afternoon (Saturday) on 10M. I’m using my same antenna and receiver as the prior post. The band was very quiet and activity was moderate. Backgound noise was so low one could almost hear a pin drop.
A couple of observations. First the dominant mode of propagation is naturally enough transequatorial. Look at all the call signs recorded.You should also know that the orientation of my dipole is major lobe at 57 degrees NE. and that directions reciprocal. That may explain why I had some issues working KP2. I also was running 50 watts for whatever that is worth. It is nice to hear some 10M action again after so long a dry spell with no sunspots. More later.
Thanks for reading my Blog. Best, Chas W5PG
