    Here are responses from Dr. McIntosh:

    That’s why it’s called a scatterplot - it (the relationship) a representation or abstraction of what’s going on. The relationship has to weight all of those maxima and find something that tries to make sense with the various counting errors. Also - the relationship is based on a 13-month averaged value - not my choice but the common measure in the field and one that masks a lot of stuff… I’m not going to hand fit the relationship to match better a few cases that seem like systematic outliers.

    data is taken from SILSO - see the website. There hasn’t yet been a monthly mean of that magnitude - I was most likely referencing daily values in a sarcastic manner. Post terminator that plot will have to be rescaled.

    Every night when they close their eyes to sleep.
    Problem is reality smacks them in the face each morning when that pesky alarm clock goes off and they wake up.

    One thing a low solar cycle is good for…..amp sales. I don’t own one, don’t plan to, but to each his own. Not having one has made any competition with powerful stations for a DX contact near impossible. I was talking to a ham across the country recently. His signal was S-7, S-8. Perfectly fine audio. He said his amp was warming up. I replied, “ you don’t need it” but he powered up anyway. Now he was 20 over S-9 and just a tad wide. I guess the point to my ramblings is if we have a good cycle, I’ll be tickled and turn my radio on more. This will be the last cycle for me. I’ll never live to see another.
