    The explanation of how unimportant planetary K is and how irrelevant the A index is was very interesting. I think a lot of people who sit on Facebook complaining "The K index is high, I won't bother turning the rig on" should be forced to watch it repeatedly.

    The Sun does what it wants not what humans predict.[/QUOTE]

    M0YRX, I just said that there are tendencies. Not that it will become true. The Sun is surely chaotic. But a minimum is a minimum. Equal which name it will get this time.

    Routinely those propagation forecasters report poor band conditions yet i can still work good DX from my mediocre station.
    That is the primary reason I stopped having faith in what they predict.
    Too many operators bow to the propaganda without even turning the rig on and that leads to inactive bands more than poor conditions.

    The sun has been around for roughly 4.5 billion years while Homo sapiens, who are the modern form of humans evolved 300,000 years ago. Intelligent humans are much less than that yet some claim to be experts on celestial bodies, weather, climate etc.

    Preposterous to claim one can predict with 100% certainty what has been occurring for billions of years. I wouldn't even give them 50/50 odds.
    Even today's meteorologists and all their high tech equipment are only 40% accurate.

    How many thousands of years did these self proclaimed experts state Pluto was a planet in our system?
    Now they claim Pluto is not one of us and they kicked him to the curb.
    How long before other planets get added or subtracted?

    Just get on the radio and be active. There are always people around the world calling CQ looking for contacts.

    You could have made 5-10 new ones instead of being here on your computer.

    To add what mainstream science is virtually ignoring and is impacting all of us.. https://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/s...geons-mysteriously-go-missing-way-north-east/

    We leave out out weakening magnetic field as we close on the reversal. This will have a much greater effect on radio as we descend into it. Again if you want to know more go here and get informed. https://www.youtube.com/user/Suspicious0bservers

    Excellent show, thanks. I enjoyed hearing of Dr. Skov’s background and how she became interested in - and persevered - in science. Her comments and perspectives on the various solar metrics were helpful, more meaningful to me as a ham than the just the bare definition one usually finds.

    Pluto has been known for just under a hundred years. Certainly not for thousands.

    Pluto is a planet by many measures. Go learn something about the politics of why a small minority of the IAU tried to make it a non planet. Not many people agree. Their idea does not represent scientific consensus, so do not misrepresent it as such.

    Larger asteroids used to be considered minor planets, as they were discovered in the 1800s. Things move on though, get over it

    That's silly, billions of years is a lot of data! Here's my prediction:. The sun will rise in the east tomorrow, because it always has, for billions of years. I doubt you can find a counter example!

    I really am surprised at the anti science bent in the comments here.
