Reunion Is on 10m WSPR

This morning I was decoding the 10W WSPR signals of FR1GZ in Reunion Island at 9724kms. I was hoping 10m would open to the USA this afternoon and I'd hear some W and VE stations coming through in the ARRL CW DX contest, but nothing heard so far. 15m is full of USA CW stations though.

Hello Roger, that is a nice one to have in the log. I read your 15 meter contacts yesterday, so I checked 15 meter this afternoon and worked a few USA stations with 5 watt CW. I tried also 10 meter but the band was already closed (maybe was not open at all) 73 Paul

I monitored 12m WSPR last week for 2 days. Did only receive 1 german station. I'll be monitoring 10m next week, Reunion would be interesting. 73 Bas

The higher HF bands are certainly "waking up" at last and are definitely worth checking for activity. It is also worth calling CQ.
