Huge 11m opening Morning 30 May 2020
« on: May 30, 2020, 1528 UTC »
Huge opening, been going on for at least an hour or two. Signals everywhere, even some FM above the band such as 27605.  Nothing trans-Atlantic heard - yet?

Hearing 11m operators right now (0100 UTC/1800 PDT) from Nevada, Southern Oregon and California, among other places. Signals overlapping in multiple layers.

This is making me feel much better about throwing a few bills at an Anytone 5555n with SSB and new antenna. Hopefully conditions pick up once I get everything installed so I can play with my new gear to its fullest potential.

I have a little Anytone "Smart CB" converted to export mode and even that has been lit up the last few days with heavy skip on all 40 CB channels and a ton of freebanders.
I'm not saying aliens are in the radio, but aliens definitely are in the radio.
