Well, we've regressed to the same point as we were a year ago with
pretty much nothing indicating a rebound. It was good for a while, but
certainly not long enough to be a peak. The peak in ~1970 was not very
tall, but at least it lasted. My gut is that it will come back (but then
again I've never been much of a gambler), and the smoothed SSN will be
the most ridiculous -looking smoothed SSN of our lifetimes. Next peak we
can say "you kids have no idea how bad we had it..."

Probably you know old good friend Murphy... There is only a light hope
the things will improve before the ARRL DX CW but STEREO images shows
nothing spectacular in upcoming days. Lets keep our fingers crossed.

Hi all...have the sunspots peaked and are they gone? The SSN number is
running at 24...a really low number...should be near 100 or above...have
we seen the peak of the cycle?
I still have seen propagation on 10m and 15m to EU but short openings
and very limited in scope.
