Been Enjoying Sporadic E

Been Enjoying Sporadic E
I put together a used 10 meter three element yagi the last week of April and got it mounted on my push up mast with a vintage Alliance Tenna-Rotor model U100 the first week of May. Since then I've been able to enjoy several days with Sporadic E propagation. A couple weeks ago I took down the mast for my Tram 1480 and mounted another Alliance Tenna-Rotor (model C225) with a two element Diamond yagi for 6 meters under the 900 MHZ yagi and Tram vertical. Caught the 6M band open a couple days later and had several QSO's around the east coast. I have to say that Sporadic E is a lot of fun.

RE: Been Enjoying Sporadic E
Looks like a great set up for you to have fun with 10M and the Magic Band. One thing you will find out about 6M is, every morning when it wakes up and has coffee it decides on how it feels. One can never predict it.
