I just happened to check 27.385 after seeing your post (20:24) and the band seems to be coming to life now. I sware it was dead 15 mins ago when I checked. Radio is a funny thing. Hope things continue to get better. It was a bit of a letdown this morning, after yesterday's great conditions. Only worked F5OYE on 12. (24.900)

Getting US coming in a bit stronger today here in Sydney on 27Mhz, and NZ stations also making an appearance
Getting Back into it on 10-11 meters

Awesome. Always great to hear VK/ZL stations. I'm going to hop over to 10M in a few mins (0:19 local) I was just about to leave 12M, when I heard a call. Just worked KH6OO Honolulu on 24.892 @0:12. Today was a bit slower, but I'm not complaining!

Wow. On AM from Georgia. Only ever worked Australia on 11M SSB. That's great propagation news.

That makes sense. If anyone has the power to work that far on AM, it would definitely be those guys!
