Well done on the callsign & welcome to the forum.
10 meters can be problematic, as it attracts too many pirate operators. For example I regularly hear music being broadcast on the FM section of the band. BUT, on the other hand using very low power & the repeaters it is more than possible to work a big chunk of the world on FM using 10 meters. Earlier in the summer I was working a Scottish amateur via an American repeater & the Swiss, Austrian & Swedish repeaters are workable from my location on 10 watts mobile as soon as even a small lift occurs, this DX capability during lifts is al;so why pirates are such a problem on it. A VERY good band if you want to work long distances on low power is 6 meters. But you will need to be patient & wait for good conditions on it. I have worked Poland on 2.5 watts & had a decent QSO with a mobile station running 1 watt.
