I'm finding mornings til a bit after noon are good from Ohio to 1 & 2 land.
The Viking Bud played quite a bit of 10M this past weekend snagging 1's and 2's including the HLR Mountain!!!

I'll fire up Saturday morning on this here 28.706 y'all mentioned and give it a go.

I have plenty of front panel AM adjustments!!!

10 seems to be open more and more now when I listen but it's almost always ssb and FM phone. 

Last sunspot peak I heard a lot of FM above 29.2. I could just barely demodulate it using slope detection with the 75A-4.  The skirt selectivity of the mechanical filters is probably too steep. Then Radio Shack put some little 10m transceivers on sale. Runs about 25 watts on FM, 25w peak on SSB and 7 watts on AM.  Looks like a revised CB rig; that's probably what it is.  I bought one because I was curious about the FM activity, and I could finally understand what they were saying and work them.

I ended up making about a half dozen FM contacts. The operation was extremely boring.  I just couldn't connect with the operators; couldn't find a thing in common to talk about.  It was like they were from a different planet or something, or maybe I used the wrong kind of deodorant.

The thing worked on AM, but the audio was horrendous; sounded like a tin can and string telephone.  The Eico 720 and 75A4 sounded a lot better on transmit and receive.  I also had maybe a half dozen slopbucket contacts but they were just about as boring as the FM contacts.  Finally I just put the thing on the shelf where it is now collecting dust next to my 2m FM rig.

Hook it back up Don.  I could work you on FM with my TS-570 and we could talk about AM.  Cool
