The sunspots are back and so is the DX! Saturday's sunspot number hit 143, the highest since 2005! Ten and 15 meters were hopping over the weekend, due to a combination of improved propagation and contest activity. Check out the CQ Facebook page and CQ Propagation Editor NW7US's website at <http://prop.hfradio.org/> to stay up to date on the latest info. Plus, learn the science behind the sunspots in CQ magazine.
Now turn off the computer and turn on that long-neglected HF ham rig! The ionosphere is hot and so are the ham bands!
