    A recent study in the journal Nature predicts Cycle 25 will not be the dire death of the airwaves predicted. Excellent fit in modelling by the Indian scientists connotes Cycle 25 will be at least as strong as Cycle 24. No 'Maunder minimum' in sight; summary at:

    Diagram from Nature and that link.

    Cycle 24 is now ending. Cycle 25 may start this year, and peak in 2024.

    Good DX to all!

    Not the worst possible news, but not like 1958/1960 when I was an SWL. Eh bien!
