I'm hearing east coast stations out here in Six-Land. Anyone up for a QSO?

10m open again this morning. Just had RTTY QSO with HZ1PS. Before that, OD5NH on SSB.

Fire it up, kids. ;)

Wow—four months elapsed between my original post and the first reply. That has to be some sort of record.

Who would have thunk it. Been in the shack messing about with JT-65 in to Europe already. Currently sitting with a cup of coffee and the ARRL Antenna Handbook and pondering a project. No adult supervision today so I think I can slip another antenna up and it won't be noticed.

It's probably taken 4 months for the SFI to get above 120. ;)

Don't even see a reason to check 10m unless the SFI get to 120. JMO

I was when I replied - trying to finish up the installation of an FTM-10SR, JMCB2003 and support peripherals on a motorcycle. This so I can get the bodywork back on the bike before it gets too cold outside and the plastic becomes brittle. Should have things fully wrapped up this week; definitely by the weekend.

Then this would be a bad time to mention the AP station I worked on 12m RTTY this morning? :neener:

Wesr Coast DX sucks. Best I've done recently is a lousy P5 station.

Well, didn't get a lot of time to spend on 10m today, but did manage to add 2 All Time New Ones to my DDXCC list; FO4BM and KH2L. Both on 10m.

"It's good to be the king.."

:agree: :rock: :bbh: :giggity:

Hearing Boston now with 5/9 on 28.444.
On the vertical antenna, he's using a 4 element beam and 500 watts.
WA1TAC it is.
Worked Rod as well, 5/7 with 200 watts in the vertical ;)

10 is open, indeed. Heard some DX, worked some stateside stations.
Might even try AM in a bit.

I'm at work, and can go out to the parking lot at any time.

HELLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, ISLANDERS?

Band seems dead here near Boston, must have closed up here already. Put out several calls, no response.

I heard some guy from PA.

Correction: It's somebody from 0-land talking to a guy in PA. He's north of Denver, whoever he is.

I just started hearing a JA station!

Give me a few minutes to get 'DSG out the door and on her way to the store and I'll play a bit.

Looking for "critical signal reports" for the Imax 2000 I put up as a test.

Well, the guy near Denver is fairly loud. If you're on 28.345, it ain't happening.

ETA: Of course, you decide to do this as it's getting dark here. :roll:

NQ6U
10-21-2012, 05:43 PM
No, I rotated my antenna to the northwest and moved up to 28.3461 to listen to the JA station. I can hear him, but he's so weak I doubt I could QSO him.

AC0L is the guy near Denver on 28.345. He's pretty strong...
