Ten meters is awesome & fickle. It's amazing what a 100 watts and a Windom & Hexbeam can do when condx are right. Domestic propagation strongly favored the U.S. west for us up in the Northeast, while 4 land was hard to come by. Never heard so many stations from ID, ND, SD & WY before on 10. Looked all over for KY, AL, GA & SC and considered myself lucky to get Fla. Also the Caribbean was unusually quiet here, but the EU's more than made up for it.
BTW, where was Africa? No D4C or 3V8BB who are usually very active in the contests.
Wonder what it'll be like next year.
I worked D4C with 10w and ONE CALL. He was there. I caught him lurking around 28.550 MHz.
