I agree the band is defiantly not dead. I was lucky enough to get E51JD Jim, Cook Islands on 28.466 5/17/2009 1:53 UTC
Sure made my weekend!

It was a BLAST ! Kept both Pre-AMPS on the Icom756Pro.
Antennas used was a 14 guage copper Dipole at 40ft horizonal and a 5/8 wave groundplane at 40 ft vertical.
So 10 meters may not be OPEN, but it is NOT Dead....
