Its pretty funny, a couple mornings ago it was so cool I had to wear a jacket in the shack. We almost hit 49 degrees F. I had blogged how August has been a cooler than normal month – albeit just because of a thick and persistent fog along the coast that is more normal for June than August. Yesterday it hit 107 degrees F here – so I must have jinxed it.
This morning I heard the strongest signals on 160M coming from VK, ZL and Alaska – much stronger than I have heard in many months. We also just had a great 40M opening to ZS on the Long Path, so maybe the equinox will kick us back into low band DX “season”.
Of course, I need 13 new entities, and while it should be easy – the trick is variety – that more entities have hams on Top Band on those entities or that more DX-peditions take 160M more seriously.
If I were on the East Coast it would have been a wrap a long time ago – only 6M would be harder to achieve DXCC from the West Coast.
Fingers crossed for Top Band.
