As I predicted yesterday 10 meters opened up with E-W F2 layer radiowave propagation on a global scale. At one point yesterday afternoon I was simultaneously working into Europe, Africa, South America, east Asia and Australia/New Zealand, simply amazing.
I snagged a new DXCC entity on 10 meters and all bands for that matter, E51CG Raratonga, South Cook Islands.
Today 10 meters could be even better, however a partially geoeffective (Earth facing) coronal mass ejection (CME) may arrive later today UTC 03/06/2011 and create minor (Kp-5) geomagnetic storming conditions at high latitudes. This could reduce the maximum usable frequency (MUF) below the 10 meter band for a time.
