Reception at G0LUJ:
Bi-directional WSPR between UK and the Canary Islands on 10m:
No signals other than WSPR made 10m, but some FT8 was decoded on 12m:
In conclusion, it is still worthwhile to continue monitoring (and make some calls if possible) the higher bands even at this point in the cycle as brief openings do occur. The 12m band was open for just over one hour, the 10m for just less. The receive antenna is optimised for LF/MF reception – stations with more appropriate antennas could have had much more success.
