I haven't really been on any other band in the last few days apart from 10 m. The 10 m band has really opened up to the USA and most days from about 12 noon you will start hearing signals coming in from the USA. In fact, the propagation is so good that you will do quite well even with a small dipole or vertical and just 100 W, the conditions really are that good. I've worked quite a few stations on the West Coast, California, Utah, Montana and Washington. If you haven't checked out 10 m then you are really missing out. Here's a little taster, I recorded this YouTube video a couple of days ago, and this is not at its best.
