In my experience 40- 400 km is the 'problemati'c range on 10 MHz.
0-30 km goes very well with ground wave, unless you live close to an 
airport. The doppler echos produce interesting QSB characyeristics.

For the medium range (40-400 km) 80 meters NVIS works very well with 
50 watts and a low antenna during the day. I can work da5uwg (300 km) 
and dk4xi-8 (300 km) easily during daylight hours. 80 gets problematic when it 
gets long in the evening (mucho qrm).

On 10 MHz my beacons are often answered by 4 stations (Pi$TUE, 20 km,
IS0GRB-3, 1200 km, SM0RWO, 1400 km and S54FAA-0 (2000 km).

This weekend we will set up an experimental 144 MHz cell for pskmail,
That should cover 0-150 km.
