10m long-path to Australia? Not here!

After monitoring 10m WSPR last evening/night for long-path propagation to Australia, I drew a blank. After the 10m band died to the USA mid-evening, only Europeans by Es and GDX copied here. No ZLs and no VKs copied. Others with better antennas may have been luckier. 4X1RF was spotting me at 0658z.

With a sunspot count of 162 and 20-30MHz forecast to be "normal" propagation today is anyone's guess!

Hello Roger, there was some lp propagation to ZL. But if there are no stations active you don't see anything! On a 11m DX cluster ZL was spotted at least 3 times by european stations at around 20:00 UTC. 73, Bas

Thanks Bas. Either no WSPR activity from VK/ZL or my antenna is not good enough.
