6M opening

Finally heard some activity on 6M SSb yesterday. Managed to work a station out in Kansas running 100 watts into a dipole. Hopefully I'll catch it again soon.

This past weekend, 08/09may21, 6 was open to most of FL,
EL9X, and Caribbean / South America even well after local
sunset but all I heard was FT-8  :(, no SSB and just 1 CW
station - also I didn't hear any beacons...

No, I was otherwise tied up, therefore I didn't call CQ.

Yeah, I always hoping to hear CW activity, but I rarely hear any. I don't even hear a lot of beacons.
