    17, 20, 40 was open to somewhere during the day. Heard SSB QSO's.

    40, 75/80 and 160 had SSB stations on in the evening.

    I heard a really cool " Santa Net" on 3.916 www.cqsanta.com

    I talked to a 15 year old gentleman who was having a ball at a YOTA station on 7.16 and worked the YW5F DXpedition on 7.182


    HF SSB is great

    Y'all should try it often!!

    Yes, HF propagation seems to have gotten a bump up the past few days. But even if the band seems dead it never hurts to throw a CQ out there. You might find the 'dead' bands are due to lack of use and not lack of propagation.

    Absolutely, I've been known to run my voice keyer sending CQ on 10 meters when it's not open with surprising results.
