Re: 7122 Net

Jim Sheldon is reporting a big M class flare and a geomagnetic storm as well! 40 is so long even now that the West coast stations are still running S7-9 at 10 a.m. Even in-state CW signals on 160 and 80 were so weak as to be unreadable at 5 this morning while Shin, JA1NUT, was 20 over 9 for a while on 40!

Last weekend during the ARRL DX contest 40-10 meters stayed wide open through most of the 48 hour operating period. Haven't seen condx like this for qyite a few years!

No takers today, the band is in bad shape with the A index at 47. Must have
been a CME on the sun. I hear very few signals on 40 and those are weak. This
doesnt bode well for the 80M Fox Hunt tonight either.

Next week will be better. Thanks to all who tried this morning.

Back to the bench, Winter's too valuable to waste.
I love this radio stuff !
