    I'll start hanging around 28.400 as well during the day and call CQ as often as possible.

    As time allows, I will do the same. When I get home tonight I'll monitor and try some RF on 10m. Lets do this!

    If it weren't for 10 Meters I probably wouldn't have kept going in the hobby. When I got my Tech license 10 meters was wide open and I talked to Argentina!!! At the time it seemed like a miracle. 10 meters from coast to coast running 5 watts from West Texas. It got me hooked on HF. When I am off work, I work 6pm to 6AM, I will try to be there. 73!!!!

    Same here! I was licensed in ‘96, but didn’t get on HF till 2003 or so, and worked lots of domestic and DX on 10m using my HTX-10 and a 1/4-wave whip. Good times.

    As best I can, I’ll get on and see what I can hear. Do we have a name for this net? :)

    Sure I will start giving 28.400 a shout every time I fire up the rig. Hope to see you there!

    Maybe we should start a Dead Bands Net. I worked MA and Aruba on 10M during the CQ RTTY contest in September. Also, about a dozen contacts on 15M including Argentina and Uruguay. I suspect that ops do not try the bands they know are dead, or listen for a short time and hearing nothing, go somewhere else.

    On the road now, but no radio. I wish I had one, here on Jekyll Island, Ga so I could listen.

    I remember working Japan on 10 meters from my mobile using one those President Radios running 25 watts to a CB mag mount on the trunk lid. I used the same mag mount stuck on my fence to work a 10-10 contest a few months ago, the band was wide open and I think I could have loaded a coat hanger and worked all over the place. Same can be said for 6 meters, when that band is open you can work the world on flea power and a mattress spring. The other evening I noticed that the CB channels were packed, zip on 10 meters no one was there. Great band really miss the openings.
