15m wide open to Caribbean, Hawaii, Azores - worked a bunch.
SFI=110

Also worked a few US stations on 10m.
First 10m Qs this cycle.

10m is open to South America from 7-land. Give it a try. Power is less of an issue on 10m than 20m.
I can’t work them; I have a Mountain in the way :D
I've not seen 10 open like this before, just worked Brazil, sign of good things to come, maybe a new favorite band?!

And at the stroke of 24:00 Zulu, the bands go quiet.
SFI=115. No wonder 10m and 15m we’re open!

I worked a mess of Europeans on 40m with the Icom.

I squeaked my last one in at 2359 with a Ham Club in Japan.

That was fun, I was on the fence about contesting for a while but honestly, not anymore.

Yes. Right in my backyard. Animals City Mountain rises a little over 1,100’ above our hanging valley starting directly behind our property.

Thanks, Jo.

This is likely my last sunspot cycle. I plan to operate a lot.
This is also likely my last ham purchase for a while!
