The 10 metre band is my favourite band. It is quite a challenge and is very dependant on solar conditions.
In Australia, we are allocated 28.00 - 29.700 mhz.
The only annoying things about this band is the FM signals emanating from non ham operators, out of certain parts of the world.
Since July 2011, I have worked just over 4,000 stations on 10m (as of December 2016). I have DXCC on 10m with 168 countries worked and have 160 countries confirmed (current as of December 2016).
I am a member of Ten-Ten International. My 10-10 member number is 76564.
One thing I have noticed about this band, is that on any given day, many amateurs assume that the band is not open. You can tune around the band and not hear a single signal. But put out a call, and then get spotted on the DX cluster, and the band comes to life.
Peter, VK3YE, has an excellent article on his website on 10m. It can be found at:-
The two maps below show the stark contrast between a typical week day Friday, and Sunday the peak contest day. Each track represents the path (not actual) between a transmitting station and a spotter. Quite an amazing difference !
