I wish...

I wish the sun was less active as it was 2 years ago. I worked 2-3 years ago more dx with qrp as I do now with the sunspot peak. Too much geomagnetic disturbances or black outs. But today I was running wspr on 40 meter with 5 watt. I was spotted by WB8ELK (AL) K9AN (IL) KC9NBV (IN) and K1QN (RI) in the early morning.


  1. Good morning Paul, yes I guess this is one of the disadvantages of having the solar cycle on the rise....more activity whether good or bad for radio.

  2. Hi Mike, yes indeed, the last three weeks conditions are poor on HF. But now I am reading a book outside in the sun, nice weather today. That's the way I like about the sun. 73 Paul
