Solar Flux Does Its Thing

Well, glad to see we didn’t get a complete solar fizzle.  As the sunspot numbers for the new cycle swung up, propagation had mostly not improved tremendously.

Then like the flick of a switch – whammo.  Suddenly this past week has seen improved conditions above 20m.  All coinciding with the calendar shift from summer to autumn.  10m conditions have been good relative to the last six years this entire week.  JA’s on 10m.  EU on 10m every morning.  These conditions are a very nice improvement which would be welcome to continue, but are at the mercy of the capricious nature of a three percent variable star.

Smoke ’em if ya got ’em.
