Care to review that?
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!
My concerrn is there won't be another peak. Time will tell.
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.
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.
