 Yes, I have been a member for several years now. I am 75860 in the roster numbers. I have not worked many 10-10 people in awhile as 10 is not in real good shape most of the time now. Once in awhile also you will hear contests that they have, they are listed in QST. Lots of fun when 10 is open. 73. Jim W5JJG

Joined and got a 10-X number somewhere around 30 years ago.

Was promised a quarterly newsletter.  Never got one.

Was told about all these great local nets (at the time).  Never heard one, although in fairness, most were active while I was at work.

After the year was up, never bothered to renew.  

Had more fun joining the Ghosts, as it turned out.  (This was an informal local group who ran 10 meter AM after midnight local time).  I think K4NQA and I are last of the Ghosts still around though; the rest have QSY'd to another plane of existence.

WN, Yah, I received about 3 news letters and never heard anything from them again. It was sort of fun being on their weekend contests though. Maybe they are just fading away now that 10 is getting dead and more dead.

I have a 10-10 number (68248) and received the quarterly newsletter while I was a dues paying member.  I haven't used 10 meters with any significance in many years. The 10 meter band seems dead most of the time. Conditions have not been good during the current cycle 24.

hey the organization formed in 1962 and has a website and maintains and updates records if you tell them you have changed callsigns, despite the way 10 meters swings like a roller coaster with the solar cycle... they have a contest coming up next weekend on Feb 4 and 5: http://www.hornucopia.com/contestcal/weeklycont.php?mode=custom&week=next#7354 (http://www.hornucopia.com/contestcal/weeklycont.php?mode=custom&week=next#7354)

i am always amazed how 10 meters *seems* dead until there is a contest and then, all of a sudden, the band starts popping with activity :D

i looked myself up and i guess i got my number in Nov. 1978 right before i went QRT from the ham bands for the most part until 3 decades later.  I am 10-10 number 14922 -> http://www.ten-ten.org/index.php/resources/tenten-lookup (http://www.ten-ten.org/index.php/resources/tenten-lookup)

if you had hopes the group would blossom into more than it has, what did you do to help it and what are your plans to help it grow going forward?

   Thank's for the info. on the QSO party!   I keep an 11 meter rig parked and squelched on 27.385 LSB.  When signals start breaking the squelch, 10 meters is usually open!

All those who said the received a couple 10-10 newsletters or never received one...  did you pay your yearly dues ?   Just like ARRL and other organizations , you don't get the newsletter/magazine unless you a member !   You can use your number forever , but you can't participate in most 10-10 activities unless a member. Been getting mine 10-10 News since 1986.

I was a member of the 10-10 International for about two years, back in the early nineties. I decided, that the dues are not worth the benefits. Paying them did not make propagation any better on the 10m band, so I dropped my interest in the club.  ;D

I have been a 10-10 member for years, fist started back in KH6 land in the early 90’s. 10 is hot and cold, keep calling and all of a sudden stations come out of the woodwork!! Then it goes dead, but that’s half the fun. If you have A 10-10 NUMBER you will get many more contacts, it seems like most every 10 who guy/gal operates on it regularly has a 10-10 number. Paid members get the newsletter, just got mine 2 weeks ago.
As a note, your 10-10 number is good for a lifetime, use it often.

Could you get an old lower 10-10 number from someone who cancelled their membership?

I don't know if 1010 would allow that. But since 1010 numbers are issued for ever. There is nothing that would prevent someone from obtaining a vanity call that is connected with a low 1010 number.

Look up the 1010 # data base and see what the lowest number is and then put that particular call into the available vanity call database and get those call letters as a vanity.

It would be absolutely fine if a son wanted his deceased father's call and dad had a low 1010 #.  But a ham in their teens or twenties that got a vanity call with a very low 1010 # issued in the 1960's will be questioned on why they sound so young for being 50 years old lol.

In one word,........... No.

 the By-laws clearly answer this issue, ALL applicants will be issued a "unique" number.

The data base is updated regularly.

 the 10-10 #will be designated as being assigned to an "SK" member and it will never be issued again to anyone.

Joined 10-10 International a few years back, around 1973 I think...#11234. Easy to remember that one. Used to "chase paper" back in the day and have a lot of certificates. They don't seem to exist any longer but it was fun. This was in the early 1970's. I made a lot of "on the air" friends back then. Not the same today. It's by far my favorite band...when it's open.

Guess I am not the only one getting back into ham radio after a multiyear "vacation". My 10-10 # is 74085. Hope to hear some of you on 10M very soon from here in Greenacres (Spokane Valley),WA. Phil Evans WA7JCE

I think they are still out there, I had 54005 back in the late 80's, took a 25 year break and just a few weeks ago was actually asked for it when there was a 10M opening one day. I had no clue  and he kept asking what it was then the guy looked it up for me, I too quit paying the dues long ago as there was very little benefit, but apparently the number is for life.

10-10 regularly conducts 9 contests/QSO parties per year, sometimes more if there is a particular reason.

Aug 5 - 6 is the Summer phone

Oct 10 (10 - 10) is the SPRINT
