Help for the 10-meter Operator
Ten Meters is one of my favorite bands. Even when it's not "open", it's frequently open. With the sunspots on the rise, so should the activity on the band increase.
Have you found the Daily Nets yet? Nets listed there will help determine if the band is open. There's a search box that lets you know which nets are in operation at a particular time.
DXMaps offers a map of openings AND the ability to post spots all in one place.
Also, there's a map and paths band openings over a 24-hour time period. The site lists the stations and who heard who over PSK.
Another propagation tool gives up a forecast for six- and ten-meter openings.
There's a number of 10 meter software defined radios that one can use to see where's the band is open. Two are dedicated to the "Beacon Band".
Also, a list of beacons on Ten is available. Tune here to see where the band is open, even when "it's not".
Ten Meters is one of my favorite bands. Thankfully, there's plenty of tools to take some of the Magic out of the Band.
