10-meter Deadness

SSB means "10 meters only" for me, so when CQ WPX SSB came during a sunspot dry spell (zero sunspots for 10 days preceding last weekend's contest) I was virtually assured of a poor showing.

A dozen tunings up and down the band between 28300 and 28500, spread throughout the daylight hours on Saturday and Sunday, resulted in no signals heard. I opted not to CQ in vain.

I think a 10-meter-only WPX entry ought to become a tradition for the next 11 years.
