Right now, 6:24 EDT, the propagation site map site DXMAPS shows 10 M phone traffic propagation all over the US East coast and down from there to Argentina, Chile, and Brazil. It notes that above FN32 grid the MUF is 73 MHZ! May be getting ready to happen farther west, as there is N/S activity on left coast. During an opening here, in SE, heard a new mil range control station (for me) on 40.15.

It's been amazing all day and still is right now.
Same today. Driving down the road in my car, a local station in Pomeroy Ohio (92.1 FM) was obliterated by "KORN Country 92.1" in Mitchell South Dakota. Two or three different stations on that frequency battling it out this afternoon when I went for lunch but I couldn't make out any call letters. An amazing day for DX. Pick your band.

Here in NW arkansas, I have been hearing some VHF Low Band skip on the later afternoon/early evenings of 07/07/21, 07/08/21, 07/10/21 and 07/11/21. This was mostly FD and PD comms and the Ontario, Canada Ministry Of Natural Resources. On 07/07/21 I heard Fort Bragg Range Control on 46.75 MHz. On 07/08/21 I heard Fort Bragg Range Ops on 41.80 MHz. But it these opennings were nothing like the great band opening we had on the late afternoon and evening hours of Tuesday 07/13/21. I was logging all the way till 10:00 PM CST and the band was still open but I had to get to bed. This is the best band opening yet for me but all seems to be skip from the East Coast and all FD and PD comms (unfortunately no military coms). I didn't have time to identify all these frequencies but it filled an entire sheet of paper. I put my Bearcat BCT-15X in 30-50 MHz search and came up with all the following logged using my Comet GP-15 Base Antenna. 46.46 MHz was a very strong signal for me and I noted heterodyne and slight phase distortion on it at times:
