Hi All..I've held back reporting on 15mtrs for now seeing as gud ol' 10mtrs has been bubbling away for well over a week now..starting in my neck of the woods as early as 1200UTC and going sometimes to beyond 1800UTC..at least a dozen or more "regulars" have been showing up so if you all were waiting on the starting gun it's now..put ur VFO on 29mhz..one returning oddity yet to be ID'ed is the carrier on 29.100 which at one time was quiet at S9+ is now "buzzy" and noisy..it lasts throughout that time period..??...gud luk boys 'n girls..have fun on AM !  73 de DAVE WB1EAD
PS: loved ur audio message Rick....

Tnx for the report Dave.. Ive been having fun on 10M..... lotsa AM dx..  actually had a small Euro AM pileup today.  A lot of the usual suspects and new stations too...  I noticed some skewed path signals and auroral flutter on over the pole stuff from Scandanavia  etc late evening grey line for me. well after dark for them...  There are lots of stations willing to try AM with the new transceivers.  It's great.. they see the signal, thenlisten, then call...   I think this is great..   Gud Luk all ...

if you want to review aurora activity when you are on the air, the live aurora map for Northern Hemisphere is here on AMfone. It gets updated every few minutes.

http://amfone.net/Amforum/index.php?topic=38072.0

Late afternoon I've listening and calling CQ with the beam at about 330 degrees searching for Japan and about 300 degrees for Australia. Nothing heard in Jersey.

Europe is easy. Most of the time the propagation to them is Sporadic E and/or some fair F2.
I wonder if there are any African stations on 10 meter AM.

Hi All..not only is the 10mtr band open daily in varying degrees..sometimes FB..other times just barely..for the last few weeks it's been super..!!..on the "oddity" side of things..that carrier on 29.100 has become a daily thing..it sounds like a repeater output now..reminds me of 29.620 when 3 or 4 repeaters are on at the same time..anyone got a clue what this..?..input/output if in fact it is a repeater..FM/AM ??..BTW another carrier at 29.130 has also been a daily visitor going on for hours..?..oh yes FMers have showed up from day to day..usually on or around 29.050..
                      Guys & gals no need to wonder..yup 10mtrs AM has plenty of activity..1400 to 1800 UTC   73 de DAVE WB1EAD
