A question for knowledgeable topbanders who've been on the band
longer than I have. I can't remember any discussions or articles on
We are currently near the peak of the annual Geminids meteor shower.
Coincidentally, topband conditions are poor despite "good STI
numbers". Is this related? I reason that if the meteors are ionizing
the E-layer enough to support propagation on 6 meters, wouldn't that
level of ionization be enough to absorb low-band signals attempting
to pass through it?
Has this been discussed/written on before?
