Re: 10 Meters, Sporadic E opening 03:00UTC on 28.400MHz USB.

Iowa was dominant to WV on 10M USB last night. Apparently, there was an "E" opening this morning as well on 10M / 11M. 
I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a buial that will satify everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.
