11 meter opening 10 June 2018
« on: June 10, 2018, 2028 UTC »
Lots of in-band activity on the 40 legal channels as well as US stations on the low frequencies above channel 1 (26885, 26905 and 26915 being very active) and several SSB QSOs in progress above channel 40. Channels 36, 37, 38 and 39 are all wall-to-wall with SSB DX in LSB mode. 27415 LSB, 27425 LSB, 27445 LSB and 27525 LSB also very busy.  I have WWV on 25 MHz coming in SIO 222 or so 25000 kHz
