Simple QRP projects, 10m, 6m, WSPR beaconing, LF/MF, sub-9kHz, nanowaves and other random stuff
Today, here at 08:40 UT this morning , (10 mins ago) 10m opened like a switch!!I had my SDR Rx running, so could see the entire band. In the space of a fewseconds, there were 2 Ionosonds, 3 beacons and 1 SSB station visible.Still hearing 5B4CY/b in cyprus but fading in and out, so unstable at moment.10m might be good today!

There is a beacon on 28.232 SV2AHT that is just in noise but seems with less QSB.. I am copying it at the moment it seems to be everything or nothing at the moment!
.At 07:24 GMT my 10M 200mW beacon was spotted by FR1GZ on Reunion Island, my best DX for some time. Glad you enjoyed your trip to the coast, when I was at Blythburgh a couple of weeks ago, the rain was hammering down. Nick G0OQK
