Sorry, but no beacons in the Province of Qu├ębec to check the propagation at least on ten meters.

On six meters we have 4 beacons which are far away of my QTH, but too close to be heard here, except during Aurora.

The nearest I can hear on ten meters is VE3TEN at 28,175. it is located at 366 kilometers to the west in Ottawa, the National Capital.

I can hear it only with very sharp filtering, and during temperature inversion (tropo) or during Aurora Borealis, This time it is louder if we have a good aurora.
