Worked Theo ZS6TVB on 10m ssb again today , strong enough for a chat . Larry was on 28.450 from Newfoundland strong and later Brazil all were sporadic E first hops from here and most likely Larry was two E hops (RX only) . The improved F layer MUF hasn't quite got to 10m (ssb) yet without a E hop to reach a contour of higher MUF but have heard VK on 10m SSB recently so things going in the right direction .

Well done Craig! 👏
Nice contacts.

Was listening to 20m & 30m later myself trying to brush up my Morse reading, (my sending is still awful!), and heard a callsign that surprised me....a BG! Had to double check, yep China. You hear China all over the SW commercial bands but can't recall a Chinese ham call before. A few ZLs on the old Morse too. Things are looking up Smile

nice one Victor and great to hear your making good use of all the different modes , only worked China a few times in the past and its certainly one of the rarer ones

15m was in great shape today and managed to work the following ( 15m SSB)

CN8AM  - Morocco 5/9

YBØIBM - Jakarta 5/7 , Great qso with Mr Daud , he wanted to test out his pronunciation of "Yorkshire" he wouldnt let me go until he got it spot on lol

ZS6CCY - South Africa  5/9

W2RE - 40db amazing signal from what must be one  the biggest stations in the states

CX8TC - Uruguay  5/9 plus
