Likewise, as already noted, the 10-meter band is one of my favorites. By extension, this is one of my favorite contests.

When the sunspots are really going, this band can be, 24-hours per day, a worldwide band.

Look for me around the Ten-Ten frequencies of 28.380 and 28.880, the Straight Key Century Club frequency of 28.050, and on 29.6 FM simplex.

Don't forget to check out the map at

Check out the article regarding 10 meters elsewhere on the blog.

Hope to see you on 10.

As 160M winds down, it's time to start thinking about the other end of HF. The 10M Contest is next weekend.

Unlike the 160M, Phone and CW may be used, locators are states and provinces, rather than sections. And all license classes now have some 10M privileges. So it presents an opportunity to all to get a taste of why contesting is so popular. And you learn a bit about the vagaries of near VHF propagation, Sporadic E, etc.

I will have a few hours to participate, from time to time, at least. And when I do, I'll be in the bottom of the band, CW only. Hope to work you there.
