It's Spring Equinox, and look at the grey line!!

There are only two times in the year when you will see the grey line running straight down the map on DX Atlas from north to south - the equinoxes. DX Atlas is a great little program for helping you find beam headings to various DXCC, and also for looking up DXCC prefixes. It's widely used by many dxers. I took this screen shot yesterday, on the Spring Equinox. This is the time when the sun is located on the celestial equator and day and night are of equal length.
