    I was listening and spinning the dial on the Dragon SS-497 between 28.400 and 29.300, kept it mostly around 28.400 to 28.500 USB and heard nothing but white noise and static from my nieghbor's power saw.....
    Would have given you a shout if I heard ya.
    10 meters has been dead during the day, but lately there's been these temporary openings in the early evenings that last anywhere's from a 1/2 hour to 45 minutes. I've listened in on a station in Florida that was booming up the coast, on another evening I heard a station from Dallas Texas, the following night it was a couple of good ole boys from Henderson Ky...(sounded like rag chewing freebanders holding court)
    Two nights ago I heard a guy calling out, and thought it was a DX station, I answered his call, and he responded.....turns out the guy was in the next county and we connected via ground wave......:blush:

    Yeah it has been wierd lately, and most of the stations I've been hearing are coming up from the southern states....(Florida, Texas).....

    My dipole is facing a SSE / NNW direction, so Bobcat115 was probably off the weak end of that antenna, and why I've been able to hear a lot of activity from down south. The openings I've heard have only been short one's lasting less than an hour, but some of them came in strong.....

    I listened again last night during what has been the golden hour of 10m lately.....(between 7:00 and 8:00 PM)..... but nothing was happening.......
