    I just worked Moz in Australia from NC on 30m, at 5:30pm local time. That is a first for me, on that low of a band, that early in the day.

    Well, this time of day I'm normally at work, so I don't get to check out the day time conditions. I'm on a string of track out days, so I get to hear it more right now.

    been on there the last couple mornings. I think its going to be the goto band that I finish DXCC CW on.
    Worked Japan, Australia the other morning and this morning around 06:30 local time there was Hong Kong & Indoneshia
    pounding in. Need to make an antenna for 30M I'm using my 80M inverted vee with the 9100, glad theres an autotuner
    Seems there are signals from all around, Europe, NA, SA, Far East as well.
    40M was wild this morning too.

    30m is almost always open here in NNJ, just worked a VR2, Hong Kong.

    I worked him (VR2XAN) at 12:41 UTC (0741 local). That was a pleasant surprise as I don't hear many stations from Hong Kong. His signal wasn't overwhelming, but it was steady.

    I've worked him on 30m several times over the last several years, usually around 2059-2308z. - Tonight I was listening @ 0721z & heard him working a stateside station. When he finished, I called/worked him for about 3 or 4 minutes on 30m @ 0721z !! - He was 579 for about 5 minutes, we had a short chat, es then he was gone !

    30m never ceases to amaze me !! He gave me a 529 report with my Icom-735 / 100w & 80m OCF dipole up about 20 ft. - Amazing ! 0221 local time (CDST) working Australia with 100w es a wire up 20ft !!.

    Ya just never know !! - VOACAP gave a 59% chance of communicating with Australia @ 0700z.

    Gotta Love it !!

    The stations I am hearing on 30 meters and those who are hearing me for the past 12 hours on WSPR.
