Sunspot cycle 24

This is the situation, the last 5,5 years. We are at the bottom of the sunspot cycle. But there is hope: Scattered sunspot group 1017 materialized on May 13th from a formerly spotless active region. Its magnetic polarity identifies it as a member of new Solar Cycle 24. Credit: SOHO/MDI. Wow, that's good news. I can use a little bit of conditions. And a little bit of sun, because it's raining heavy here.
Today I worked: Vlad S57KV on 30 m CW; Herbert DL9GAU on 40 m ssb; and Alexander EN500I on 20m ssb. F5REF Bernard with BPSK31 on 40 meter.
