10 meters was active this afternoon.


FT8 waterfall on 10m 
Around 19:30 UTC I tuned to 10m and warmed up my JTDX program and I was pleased to see a very busy waterfall. I threw my call in and was answered by some U.S. stations but also the Netherlands with a report of -13. I did have a German op call me but the FT8 gods were not smiling on us and a complete contact was not made. 

PSK reporter had me being spotted in the U.S. and Europe as well.

    Good morning Uwe and thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, I too was surprised with 10m but I am guessing with the conditions on the up swing that we are going to see more and more of this.
