    Unfortunately the prior prediction of increasing prop conditions--beginning now-- look like they are off by six months to a year....

    Well, I'm looking forward to it. I've only been a ham for 3 1/2 years, and have never seen a Solar Maximum. I'm looking forward to working some serious DX!

    It should be good. Here are some contacts made with 5w SSB pedestrian mobile half way across the world during the last cycle.

    Rather disappointing as most was about flares and not much about propagation or solar flux.
    They predicted a cycle similar to the last one and did not think we are entering into a prolonged minimum.....time will tell. Their math is a bit fuzzy though as they said er just entered into cycle 25 and the peal will be in 4 to 5 years.....maybe a new kind of solar cycle?

    Someone needs to tell 40M that the "new cycle" has started.

    40m has been fine.

    I worked VK6LW on 12 Sep...long-path on 80 CW an hour before my sunset and an hour after his sunrise. That was amazing.
