The outlook for 10 meters has been absolutely dismal for the last few months, and will likely continue to be poor in the months ahead...

So shouldn't the prices of 10 meter radios start dropping on Ebay?

10m propagation during the summer is typically limited to sporadic E. It will likely improve in the fall.

I wouldn't expect the asking price to drop, but what ppl are willing to pay may show a small decline.

Those that know, will pay what it's worth.  Those that don't, will either overpay when the band is hot, or ignore it b/c the band is closed.

It's a little like buying snow tires in summer. The price isn't all that different (well, large retail outlets have sales when stuff comes in season, ignore that for now), but the demand may be.

Just wait until around late September into October- 10M should light up as Cycle 24 starts the back-end and downside of 10M activities. As for "Ebay and prices" - shop at your own risk. Relying on ebay for anything is a rolling the dice game.

There is probably no correlation between "10m" radio prices and the seasons, propagation, solar cycle or planetary alignment. There is, possibly, some relationship with the price of diesel, bacon, Maximum UP Time™, and Gene Tracy CD's.

Highest correlation of 11M nutjobs will be with Gene Tracy 8-tracks!!! They both seem to resurface at Walcott truck stop every 11 years!
