10 meters was active this afternoon.


FT8 waterfall on 10m 
Around 19:30 UTC I tuned to 10m and warmed up my JTDX program and I was pleased to see a very busy waterfall. I threw my call in and was answered by some U.S. stations but also the Netherlands with a report of -13. I did have a German op call me but the FT8 gods were not smiling on us and a complete contact was not made. 

PSK reporter had me being spotted in the U.S. and Europe as well.

Hey Mike, good to see 10M working well. Unfortunately I've not been able to get close to the shack recently, due to the intense heatwave we're having. The shack has the sun on it all day and when you walk in, you almost pass out LOL. Oh dear, we moan when we're cold and moan when we're hot.

Good afternoon Tom and as always, very nice to hear from you, I can fully understand that during the very hot times during the summer a shack with no air conditioning is not the place to be. We have weeks at a time with very hot temps and humidity to add to that. For this reason all rooms here are air conditioned.
I hope things cool down for you.
