ARRL's 10 metre contest this weekend

One of my favourite HF contests, given the right conditions is the ARRL 10m contest. It takes place this coming weekend from 0000 on Saturday to 2359z on Sunday night.

The big question is what will conditions be like? During CQWW, I listened briefly on 10m but didn't hear anything other than a local beacon.

Over the 48 hours, some openings should occur, but it's a question of catching them! Let's hope some contacts will be possible. If you're in the shack, why not leave the rig running around 28500 on SSB, or perhaps 28005-010 on CW.

Sporadic E or Meteor Scatter during the daytime may be possible whilst late afternoon or early evening may show openings to South America or Africa. Let's hope so!
