yep, the Higher bands are open, ten yesteray evening had more beacons than I 
have ever heard.  But, I have no idea what sort of operation is going on!! 
heard no AM so went to ssb, worked a fla station  that would not say more 
than five or six words, then nothing. another w2ggi, was calling cq or qrz, 
he would come back with w8r??  your 5x9 missed your name and qth, then next 
exchange would be thanks, qrz!!.   I hope that as more do move up to ten 
this sillyness will abate.   Yes, I do undestand that some may be new and 
not  comfortable, so I do try and draw them out with the usual questions, 
antenna, gear, weather, what are you hearing etc etc.  but it just does not 
seem to work on ten.  Bernie W8RPW
