ARRL Int'l DX Contest, SSB. 10 is open!

Working the ARRL Inter. SSB DX Contest this morning, and 10m is WIDE OPEN! Just worked into Namibia, Africa on 28.417! Loads of stations active this morning (Saturday, 3/5). Check out more info on it at: . See you on the bands!

...adding a bit more after the contest finished on 3/6. I found Zambia, Canary Is, Madeira Is, Saudi Arabia, Sardinia, Nigeria, Namibia and more between 28.500-28.600!
The contest was a great way to spend the day inside, especially with the rain and such going on. Other than a bit of rain noise, the band conditions were nice. I worked 10m only, logged 156 contacts, 47 countries, and made 21996 points in the contest. I had a blast, and was my first long sit-down with a contest since 1994!
