We are right at the bottom of the solar cycle between cycle 24 and 25. December 2019 saw the record for the most continuous time with NO sunspots observed at all. That’s not to say that there is nothing about to work. Since the New Year there has been a great deal of DX about. At CARC we have our very own ClubLog league. If you’re a CARC member you can join the CARC ClubLog group and have your QSOs recorded as they happen. Most modern computer logging software can be configured to automatically upload to ClubLog and your call will appear in the table below. We can expect to see HF conditions steadily improve over the next few years. Things will get (even) better.
