Sunspots

I have not yet turned on the rig today. This morning when I looked at the HF propagation I saw a Solar Flux of 82 and sunspots 38. Wow, that would mean that today I can work some DX? That would be nice. I worked G3LUW Brian from Lifton, UK with 5 watts SSB on 7134 KHz. He had a good signal here with his 200 watts.

  1. I heard a US station last night on 40m PSK31, and this morning some Europeans worked a VK8 on 20m PSK31 (I couldn't hear him). Things are definitely improving.

  5. Great seasonal blog header, Paul.

    From what I read, conditions are improving. I expect to be back at my USA QTH March 1, so I hope propagation continues to improve...and remain improved. QTH in "F" land may be different next year, meaning a better antenna set-up condition.

  6. Hello Steve, Adam and Dick,
    Lets hope this is a promise for 2010! A lot of sunspots. Last night 40 meter was completely dead. I did not hear any station. Only 80 meter was good. Lets see what this day will bring. 73 Paul
