Hello Mark, and welcome back!

Well, right now we're "in the dumps" so to speak.

Give it about 5 more years, and 10 meters will be hopping again.  Work Europe all morning, and South America/Asia afternoons and evenings......with way less than 100 watts and a dipole.  I used to do it from my car with one of those Radio Shack 10 meter rigs (CW) and a whip antenna on the back.

There are some sporadic openings, and contests do bring activity, but nothing like you most likely remember it being in the past.

Until then, a really big book may help pass the time...

73, Jim/k7unz

My bet is on about 3 to 4 YEARS from now.  No need to rush out and get the 10 meter antennas up for a while yet..........

Right now is a pretty good time to put up the 20 thru 160 meter antennas...........

When all you hear is Spanish in the CW portion... then it's hot.
