sun spot cycle

We seem to be at just about the sun spot bottom. Any suggestions to;

1. get active on 80 and 40

2. start building 6 and 10 meter antennas to avoid the rush

3. take up stamp collecting

Even 17 meters is dead quiet. This is very depressing.

It's hit or miss. Certainly nothing like 6 years ago, but 20 is still pretty good, 80 is good, and 15 has it's moments. 10 sucks.

It's not near as depressing as when the only HF rig you have is for 17 meter cw, and qrp at that. Our day will come. Don't despair. I've been riding sunspot cycles since 1964, when I was first licensed.

Age brings patience.

40 has been decent here of late. Working some good DX on 40m CW early in the AM. The A has been horrible for anything above 40 and 6 has been average.

Go work the birds. SFI A K dont matter

40 meters may be a plan for the next two or three years. Six is always a wild card and worth watching although the silence gets on my nerves.
