Great Propagation forecast but that’s it…..
CQMM contest. I have very few of the South American DXCC's and it would had upped my total for the ARRL Jubilee. The news seemed good with rising sunspots,flux and lower solar wind....BUT.... for some reason the spots were all over my DXLab DXview world map but that's as far as it went. I heard nothing at all at this end. It just seemed to be one of those weekends with great conditions on paper but in the real world not so good. On Saturday I did make one contact PP1CZ Brazil (all ready have that DXCC) made it in with one watt with several repeats. That gave me a distance of 5088 miles per watt. Today the numbers look great again sun spots (118) and SFI (148) but I did notice the Bz is at -15.5 that is the lowest I have seen it for some time now and once again the bands were dead.Mike Weir, VE9KK, is a regular contributor to AmateurRadio.com and writes from New Brunswick, Canada.

Seemed to be that way here too.
Good evening Peter, good to know I’m not alone. Let’s hope in the weeks ahead that things will improve! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment .
