One of the 40M beacons on the band is Roberto – with a 2 element yagi up 100′ – and an S9 signal
The sunspot number is up to 24 – and growing, and its really great to hear the band open. I do hear a ton of atmospheric noise that I did not hear as much in the Winter.
This might have something to do with the noise!
OK – its great to hear 40M open – and I think I like this band more every day – because when the sunspot cycle is in the basement – 40M will come through.
