Look at those sunspot numbers - get on 10 metres now!

I have not seen the sunspot number this high in a long, long time. The sun is literally bursting with activity. Right now the sunspot number is 173, which is the highest I've seen it since I was licenced in 2009. Right now, I am listening to T88TO on Palau island in the Pacific on 10 metres CW. I suggest you QSY to 28 Mhz as soon as possible because there's sure to be some good DX and to be worked with the numbers that high . . .


  1. Good morning Anthony, I was also looking in amazement the other morning with regards to the current propagation. My plans are to check out what SOTA are operating and see if I can get some in the log book. Good luck riding the sun spots!!

  2. Thanks Mike. Nabbed seven new DXCC on 10 metres today, plus a couple of new ones elsewhere, including Singapore on 17m which was a brand new DXCC for me.
