CQ CQ CQ #HamRadio issue: Video from NASA about “Our Next Solar Cycle”

NASA has a video about the next Solar Cycle. Every 11 years your planet’s yellow star goes through a cycle of more or less activity.

This activity can effect the layers of your planet’s atmosphere. In turn that impacts the propagation of radio waves.

We are at a minimum of the 11 cycle. Hopefully, for the sake of amateur radio operators, we will emerge from this minimum and get onto the upward slope of the sine wave.

How not to moderate, but good information.

    So far since I got onto HF this year I have had some success with QSOs on 40 and 20 meters but have yet to hear anything on 15 and 10. I have an end fed half wave antenna which should be good for those frequencies, and with my tuner I should be able to use 17 and 12 as well. It will be fun to see them come alive again.
