    Thanks everyone.. The explanation of N0NBH's space wx chart starts @ 38:00 and is fun.. MUF out of Boulder "No Rpt" = no report.. Regarding the 6/4/2m Band section- "Closed". As Dr. Skov mentioned, this is a broad generalization. It's a good idea to look up the current MUF (D/E/F prop), Hepburn tropo maps, and Sporadic E condx (roughly 24MHz+) for your region. Es- we're well into the Seasonal condx that affect 'most' continents.. On the flip side, there is year-round HSMS and EME available, regardless of solar condx.

    DO1FER , time will tell if you are correct but as SC25 is up on SC24 in pretty much every aspect and currently looking like having a maximum amplitude of 151 ( based on SSN so far in cycle ) the talk of another type of "Dalton" minimum seems highly unlikely.
    Should be good for a laugh watching " The SpaceWeather Women " if nothing else. In the Y/tube era a quote from Prof. Fenyman seems apt.

    Thanks folks, Dr. Skov was fantastic... we could have gone on for hours, however there were some hard time limits. She will be back on in the near future to take some deeper dives and answer more questions.

    I don't think you can talk radio in relation to the sun without the effects from our weakening magnetic field. I tend to think all bets are off and predictions are useless.

    HIYA RICK!!!
    Really it's ALL ABOUT "EXPERIENCE" (LONG-TERM) using HF on a daily basis, and USING THE SOLAR REPORTS as a TOOL will give you a slight indication of what you can really EXPECT!!!
