10m JT65

More in hope than expectation, I am now active on 10m JT65. Although there is quite a bit of activity, I have neither spotted or been spotted by anyone on 10m tonight. Soon I'll go QRT and come back on 10m JT65 after breakfast.

UPDATE 2030z:  Nothing spotted, so time to go QRT on 10m JT65.

UPDATE 2040z:  Now QRT on all bands.

UPDATE 2044z: From my logbook I see that 20 countries were spotted on 10m JT65 in the last week.

Hello Roger, I think it is also the antenna you use on 10m. There is propagation sometimes even very strong. See the results from my "neighbour" station PG0DX:


Henry ends high in the score list. I know he is only interested in a path to VK/ZL. Henry is using a 5 element beam on 20m heigth. You cannot compare it with your setup. But it is interesting to see a QSO with VK is still possible on 10m. 73, Bas

Thank you Bas. My power and antenna on 10m are considerably smaller than your friend, but still our hobby can be enjoyed.
