Late E's for 11M, then 10M!
« on: August 05, 2019, 0241 UTC »
Around my neck of the woods, local HAM's on lightning free weekend evenings chit-chat on 10M, 28.415MHz USB. And, since this was a nice dry, storm free, Sunday evening, the weather must have keep any local ops outside today. However, I did hear from 23:25UTC - 01:30UTC stations from N. MI, NJ, then the swamps of LA. Scanned 11M CB, and sure enough, that was hopping mad with E skip. So, still some E's this late.
I can't decide upon what's worst, young and stupid, or old and chemically dumbed down.

I heard it said that the 10 meter maybe dead, but the  11 meter band is awake and alive. I think there are people more waiting for the band to open on 11 meters. The sfi number has been so low for so long.
