Also, take a peak at:

29.6 FM simplex
29.01- 29.02 AM simplex
28.68 USB sstv  ("MMSSTV" decoder)
28.076 "jt65a"  (try "jt65-hf" for decoding)
28.12 "psk31"   (many programs... try "FL Digi" multimode decoder)

While rcving 10m AM/FM stns- try switching between a vertical and a horizontal antenna if you have these.
This helps with signals arriving out of phase and with propagation paths etc.

28.2 mhz cw mode: IARU global beacon channel network.. Listen here for about 4 minutes.. There are about 15 active beacons here that tx in a coordinated global sequence.
 Try the "W6NEK" IARU beacon tracker/map program. Its easy and fun to watch.

Had lots of 10M repeaters in here yesterday. I worked a few guys in Dallas, Texas.
Please QSL to MaplRadio@gmail.com

Next weeks contest: guess how many Volkswagons can fit in Joy Behars mouth. I pick five.

Anyway. It's back. Let the summer in. ;D
