Thanks for stopping by the virtual KazShack. Feel free to comment - I often approve them.

Seeing Spots – Cycle 24

Yet another contest season is under way, with a sunspot number still stuck on zero. Took a pass on CQ WW – not much interest.

I ran into this NASA paper describing a possible link between the solar cycles and the solar tides. Fun stuff.

Then there’s this little gem on the proxy data, showing that radio was born at the best possible time for chasing DX above 10mc. Not encouraging for radio enthusiasts of the coming centuries – but no indication of whats up right now either.
