Surprise, surprise! North America on 10m

K3NAL has been spotted here on 10m WSPR at 1918z, 1948z and 2008z.   At 1936z, 1942z and 2016z WB5WPA (7591km) was spotted.

I was quite surprised to see the band open in this direction. Conditions N-S were just average only so I thought N.America was unlikely. Again, WSPR indicating openings.  WB5WPA and CX2ABP had quite a bit of Doppler at times - equatorial spread-F the mode involved indirectly or directly? Wondering if the N.Americans we coming in via an indirect path?

UPDATE 2050z:  Just been spotted by VE1MDO at 2046z.
