US west coast open on 21MHz in the afternoons

There are nowadays good conditions to the States on 21 MHz almost every late afternoon.
Map from at about 4pm GMT 19.2.2012
Good opportunity to work US states...especially the west coast is coming strong. The west coast is normally a lot bigger challenge than the east coast.

I nowadays work US also on 7MHz in the early mornings. The same 10m vertical antenna is used for both 21MHz and 7MHz. It is up 12m and with three 10m radials. For 21MHz the antenna works as a 5/8 wave gp, which has a low lobe; good for dx working.
