Cycle 25 is on it's way

SIGNS OF LIFE FROM THE NEXT SOLAR CYCLE: The sun is currently in the pits of a century-class Solar Minimum. However, the quiet won't last forever. This week, a sunspot from new Solar Cycle 25 appeared on the sun and unleashed a minor solar flare. These are signs that Solar Cycle 25 is sputtering to life, heralding a new Solar Max in the years ahead. Today the SFI is 70. [http://www.spaceweather.com]

SFI 70 today

Today I worked IMØDFT, RW4D, UA6HGM and US1IL with FT4 on 20 meters. A fast digital mode but less sensitive than FT8. With FT8 I worked R1AV, RX1AB and R3PE. As a surprise I saw I was spotted by VK2BYI on 20 meter FT8 with -19dB. My power was 40 watts.

Is CB radio something from the past?

Is CB radio dead? Not in the USA. This is a really nice video about CB activity on 27 MHz. The only activity here in the Netherlands is about a few guy's with FM. Normally a dead band. This video reminds me about the good old days.
