    Could not get the cards I posted to edit so my 10 meters report here.
    10-12 has been showing to be "fair" conditions.....yesterday and today both were decent for Dx, it just took more operator effort. As the upper band conditions are posted as fair or poor many days it has much fading but the contacts are still out calling just the signal levels are poor. If the noise floor is decent I've made several of these posted with absolutely zero signal level on the meter.....audio comes thru 100 percent just no signal. This morning several contest guys were calling from Europe and many other folks just out making contacts. Tried QRP early but conditions forced 100 watts to get thru the pileups...all below are from my mobile 100 watt radio, Wilson mag mount and saltwater bay as a ground plane. If you guys have access to a saltwater bay or beach front do yourself a favor and spend a few hours operating as close as you can get to the water.....you will like it. My home location with the "Big Antenna" (40 meter loop) isn't even in the same ball game. I can drive inland from the water just a few hundred yards and note a huge change down in signal levels. Hope everyone has a good Weekend and good Dx. 73 KF5VDX
