    How about today's opening on 10m?
    I actually worked 10m CW (thanks KB3KTR !!!)
    and saw a bunch of spots of other EU-USA contacts on 10.
    What's your take on this- will it last? Will it get better? Was it a super rare thing?

    Of course, while I'm in the office and away from the rig. :-(

    Hello Sado , no not rare as it happens every June/July due to the folding of the jet stream creating stepping stones of sporadic E across the Atlantic (?) contacts are being made on 10m SSB to the USA and Canada from Europe , starting in June it tends to be +21.00 UTC but as the season moves on it tends to get earlier in the day ( just my impression ) Still sporadic in nature as things have to be in the right place and the right things happening for the path to exist.

    Back in 1980s I fell in love with 10 m and it was great-
    then seven thin cows & hungry years followed, and another seven, and another...
    Sun cycles suck big time!

    Thanks! I should make it a priority to be on 10 around that time then!
