Most contacts on 10m were made by schedule arranged on other bands. Sometimes 10m was very good, but nobody on air. I will take the opportunity to remind all HAMs to listen to the IARU-Beacons. Also here in Caracas we have installed one of these machines. Please listen to them! You will be surprised, how often bands are opened.....
Lot of money has been invested into those beacons and it's a pity, that only few know about their existence.
