Tonight, 40M sounds a lot like mid summer conditions – when EU fades (F5IN – a veritable beacon on CW during the Winter and Equinoxes is not heard as usual tonight). Dany, ZS3D was weak – but he is always weaker than Bill, ZS6CCY – whom I haven’t seen spotted for a while now. I need to check the morning Long Path to see how that is doing.
There is some lightning in Colorado and Florida, but I don’t hear any real crashes. The aurora is weak, and I do hear what I think is 9A2AJ – but in the noise. I2VRN is S9 tonight – so whatever he does, he’s the best DX on the band.
I plan on mostly monitoring 40M this Summer – and perhaps we will get something at night on 20M. But my bets are more on 40M.
