Sunspot count is 96 with "normal" 20-30MHz conditions. I shall probably stick on 6m , looking mainly for Es and GDX, but may go back to 10m if 6m is very very quiet. This week I have been spotted twice in South America (Brazil and Uruguay) on 10m WSPR with 2W.
So far, SQ9SIM has spotted my 6m 1W ERP weakly just once on WSPR at -29dB S/N.
UPDATE 1040z: Very strong spot from DK8NE (755km) just now of my 1W ERP on 6m. Looks like a good day for 6m Es.
UPDATE 1050z: G4ENZ (176km) in IO81vv being spotted quite well on 6m GDX. Doppler (2Hz) suggests aircraft reflection, at least on some transmissions?
UPDATE 1100z: 4X1RF (3519km) spotted my 6m 1W ERP at 1058z at a respectable -22dB S/N. Also, even more spots by German stations. This is a VERY good 6m day!
UPDATE 1230z: Es from SQ9, DL, F, I and 4X1 so far plus GDX. A good day so far on 6m QRP.
UPDATE 1620z: All quiet here this afternoon on 6m apart from 20+ spots from G4IKZ. Still amazed at spots from Israel - that is SOME distance on 6m, especially with 1W ERP from a small V2000 vertical.
UPDATE 1717z: At 1648z a surprise +3dB S/N spot from CN8LI (2113km) in Morocco of my 1W ERP 6m WSPR signal.
UPDATE 1945z: Quite a lot of spots now being exchanged with CN8LI (1830-1918z ish). 6m open in that direction.
