Here's a short video from the "HamRadioConcepts" youtube channel explaining the attractions of the 30 Meter Amateur Radio Band (10 MHz). This video calls the 30 Meter Band a "hidden gem" because there's less noise and better propagation than some other ham bands. Especially interesting is a discussion of how digital modes such at FT-8, PSK31, CW, and JT65 can be used effectively on this band. All it takes to enjoy this non-contest band is a simple dipole or vertical antenna. Many modern transceivers include this band in their layouts in addition to the more "classic bands" we use everyday on HF. Thirty meters is also a good place to practice and improve your CW skills.
