10 opened up later in the day

10 has been mouse-quiet these many past weekends. But today 10 opened up late in the day and here's what was decoded at my QTH in Philadelphia.

Bob, N3XKB has been a somewhat regular entry in the WSPR logbook of late, and we've exchanged emails about WSPR ops, expecially on 10. It's always great to see him on. But now we have FY5KE from Talloires in southwest France making an appearance in the later afternoon, and wonderfully, VK2KRR in NSW Australia showing up at 2150.

So it proves that 10 remains a band to keep an ear on, as occasionally, even the solar doldrums, it produces surprises.
