Ten-Ten International Net #77458


My Ten-Ten International number is: #77458

I love 10 m band for his outstanding propagation, long distance communication with low power during the high solar activity.

Indeed, you don’t need a serious equipment and antennas to start working on 10 m band. Because it’s a top HF band the size of antenna usually small, so it wouldn’t be a problem to build an Yagi or Quad antenna. My first antenna for 10 m band was just a simple GP (ground plane), then I tried the vertical delta loop. Of course, the most advantage was with 3-4 elements Yagi. I opened the world of stations that I never seen before. Here in USA I continued work on my one of favorite band and eventually I became a Ten-Ten International member.

See you on the 10 m band. Active on SSB, CW, PSK31.

10 m band is OPEN

Check it out. My mobile station at home. Rig is FT-857 and antenna is ATAS-120. As you can see there is 2 wires 2.5 m long each. It helps to get 1:1.1 SWR.
I heard many stations from east coast, CX, PU, LU and ZL on my mobile antenna.
