    This just in: New study shows likelihood of a permanent absence of any further significant sun spot activity, apparently due to a not well understood "latching" effect of being so low for so long.

    No sunspots? Love it...160, 80 and 40, my favorite DXing bands are better now. 20-15m DXing was quite boring, way too easy, no challenges.
    160 and 80 DXing take some operating skill and CW proficiency, not just a fat wallet and a loud mouth. I wish old Sol a great long snooze and pleasant dreams.

    Someday, when 2200 is the only band we can make contacts, we'll all lament the days when "160 was the DX band" :D:D
