I am very new to working 10 meters. In fact, I just got my antenna up in the air yesterday. I've been able to listen to 10 meters using a modified CB antenna, but I just couldn't get out. Anyway, I am having quite a bit of fun with 10 meters. It's almost a game of "get in as quickly as you can". It seems the band will open up for a bit, but not knowing how long it will stay open for adds an urgency to make as many contacts as possible. I like this game!
