    I hear a lot of folks calling "CQ 10 10" and I assume they are attempting to only make contact with other 10-10 members. I looked at the membership application and it is a prerequisite to log 10 QSOs with 10-10 members.

    Maybe this is a dumb question, but is it proper procedure for a non-member to answer a "CQ 10 10" for the purposes of making those 10 QSOs? Is it appropriate for a non-member to call CQ 10 10 for the same reason?

    as a TECH, you can use the daily (except Sunday) 10-10 net on 28.380 @ 1800z too.

    28.425. If you can hear him in CA, the band is open to the East Coast.

    Yes - Todd in fact makes a pretty darn good 10m SSB beacon. He'll run that voice keyer calling "seeeeeeee cue seeeeee cue"
    for hours on end sometimes without a single answer. I honestly believe much of the time he's not even home - he's simply
    "holding down his frequency". I actually worked him once and 1 minute in truly regretted answering LOL!

    But yes, it's totally fine to get your 10 members by answering their 10-10 calls. I got my 10-10 number for the heck of it
    a few years ago - worked all 10 in about 20 minutes or so. Note that you do NOT have renew your membership ($$) every
    year. Your number will NOT be deleted and you can still work 10-10 events - just can't apply for their awards.

    The only person I'm aware of having lost their 10-10 number was....... you guessed it! Todd KC4TVZ!
