FB on your efforts during the sunspot minimum.
This reminds me of my experience back during the sunspot minimum of the  
mid-70's, explaining to a recently licensed kid from my home town just how 
much  fun 10 meters would be in a few years when the sunspots returned.  His  
reaction was like what I might have expected had I tried to  explain just how 
much fun sex could be, when his only experience to date  was maybe having 
kissed a girl.
Fortunately in a few years the sunspots did return, he found out that I was 
 right, and turned into a pretty good contester to boot.

I don't  know what these sunspots are you guys keep talking about. ;-) I've
been  licensed since the summer of 2007 and on HF since the summer of 2008.
In  less then 1 year of being on HF, I've logged over 6500 contacts with  
max and a G5RV wire  antenna.
