    Things are looking better than they had been (looking). :)

    Worked S01WS, ZD7GWM, and CN8KD yesterday all within a few minutes. Even with the geomagnetic storm there is still plenty on!

    Well, no question the sun has been on a very long bender over the last 60 years or so. There's a reason NASA keeps flinging probes at it.

    Time indeed will tell.

    That's a cool gauge! Does that really exist in real-time at a site?

    I cut it from the DXHeat cluster.

    Things are looking up.

    Enjoy! (making the most from 'bad' conditions)

    Exactly. I did quite nicely in 2013 on 10 & 15. Patience my son.

    This is frustrating.

    Why?

    Because if conditions are so terrible, why am I able to make contact with 100 to 300 watt stations that are as far as 6,300 miles away? I am in South Korea, and had contacts to E51JD (6,300 miles) and VK2OWD (5,100 miles) yesterday. My antenna was a ladder line doublet. My power was 70 watts.

    Either too many of these bought antennas completely suck, or people just aren't getting on.
