15 meters is open daily.  It's rare for it to not be open during daylight this year.

Turn your beam or dipole north and work Asia over the pole right now. T32AU and VP6T (South Pacific) are also being heard and worked. If you're using a vertical....hope.

What's wrong with a vertical?  Low take-off angle helps for DX.  I hear and work a LOT of DX since I put up my vertical.

Nothing. It's just not as good as a beam. The pileups on those stations were pretty huge and you need to stand out to be heard. It's far less likely to happen with a vertical.

Oh I see... working a pileup isn't my cup-o-tea anyway because they just want an entry in a logbook. Smiley
