I read this quote today: “Bands are only dead if you believe they are.” [K2WH] We all look at predictions but are they reliable? Not always. I think we should keep on trying on different bands, e.g. 10 meter, don’t think the band is dead. Maybe it looks like that way because nobody tries. Keep on trying and give a call so now and then. You will be surprised. WSPR is a nice tool, but when one believes the band is dead and he stopped transmitting, we’ll never know if there was a chance for propagation.
