Not a US ham, at least. In the US "10 Meter band" is allocated as 28.000 - 29.700 MHz


Per: http://www.arrl.org/frequency-allocations
o Icom IC-756ProII, ProIII, Alinco DX-70, Kenwood TS-680s
o WinRadio G303e, Degen/Kaito 1103/DE1103, Stoddart NM-25
o 1/2 wave 80m Dipole used with several tuners
o Tuned loops from 2' thru 16' diam. capable of 160m thru 10m
