10 meter vertical

Put up a Sirio 827 5/8th vertical on top of my mast today, been a long time since I was active, some weak signals/beacons via meteor scatter, the Quadrantids are peaking around now, heard some loud ssb on 27.555 from South America, nothing heard on 10 mtrs, no doubt CB'rs using decent aerials on that band, look forward to some cw and ssb qso's soon
