Southgate Amateur Radio has a 10 meter report:

W6MVT in Southern California was pleasantly surprised after erecting
a new vertical. His first catch was E51JD from the South Cook
Islands on 28 September at 0022 UTC. This was his first SSB DX on 15
meters in many years, though the opening vanished as quickly as it
came.

Jeff, N8II reported last Saturday, September 26:

"Solar storm today, early about 1400-1500Z skip was shorter than
normal (NJ and NC on 40) and W9-land on 20 along with a few ME/NB
stations (Maine QSO Party this weekend), but after a good run of 5s,
6s, 7s, and 0s on 20 SSB this afternoon the condx are very poor as
of 2015Z. The storm is in full force."

Ken, N4SO shared this from the Alabama Gulf Coast:

"A wealth of information is available from the following:

"http://www.reversebeacon.net/beacons/beacons_ncdxf.php

"Also, one more Beacon on 21.150 MHZ is heard to add to LU4AA, OA4B,
YV5B.

"W6WX is often heard at this location near 2300-0000 UTC. His
signals are strong enough to hear at 100 watts and 10 watts."
