I bought a 10m radio on eBay back in 2007 during the solar minimum when 10m propagation was nothing to write home about. I verified that the radio worked at that time, though it didn't seem to work very well. And I wasn't sure if it was the radio's fault or the band's.
I was thinking of breaking the radio back out to see what is going on, but was wondering what the more experienced 10m band users are experiencing at this time. How is propagtion on the 10m at this time as we are supposedly approaching the peak of this solar cycle? I do note that this solar cycle (the 24th) is much less active than the previous one.
I'm kind of interested to hear from 10m enthusiasts about how well (or not) they are doing on the band, compared, say, with earlier years when the sun was quiet.
