This week I seem to have a thing for completely missing or being unable to make use of good propagation conditions on the 10 meter band. I do use the WebSDR at Utwente to check the band. Yesterday I noticed some activity, including a Lebanese radio amateur who was very popular. Lebanon does not have a lot of active radio amateurs and other radio amateurs want to have contacts with as much countries as possible, including 'rare' ones.

I also heard some unlicensed transmitting music. With the 10 meter amateur band being in frequencies above the '27 MHz CB' band there is some 'export-only' equipment that can do both and unlicensed use of the 10 meter amateur band happens quite regularly.

Maybe I want to upgrade the HF antenna experiment to also work on the 20 meter amateur band. Working long distance (DX) is usually a lot easier on 20 meter, especially at night. There is a nice video about making contacts on 20 meter at night: The Fun Of Ham Radio DX - Making Friends Around The Globe - RadioHamGuy on Youtube.
