Not since the ARRL Contest this year have a heard one signal and then it was
just a few from 6 & 7 land and few from South America. Is anyone hearing
anything on 10 meters or is everyone just not QRV?

We're at the absolute bottom of the trough for the solar minimum
lately. Several weeks went by recently with hardly a single sunspot. I
read an article recently on the ARRL site that said on contest days,
hams are injecting enough energy into the ionosphere to get some
propagation going. You're likely going to have to wait a little longer
for natural openings on 10 meters, or just be standing by on the next
big contest day.

There's been some activity the last couple of evenings my OM tells me.
Probably some sporadic E propagation. I heard it Wednesday but last night I
was teaching a class.

Check the DX cluster. Sunspots may be down but 10 is really open.

I am working stations around the Nation, mostly 3, 4, 8, 9 land, well
into the evening hours. Check the 10-10 web site for local nets and
check in. Listen for me on 29.6 FM or 28.385 QRP calling channel.
