Sunspots on track

Latest graphs (March 2 2010) from the NOAA space weather site suggest that the smoothed sunspot number predictions are on track with a maximum of 90 forecast to occur in May 2013. This is not a high number but would still suggest excellent conditions on 15,12 and 10m from later this year until 2015. If you have not experienced 10m when wide, wide open then you are in for a nice surprise: dust off your QRP rig, put up a 16 foot long dipole and work the entire world!  Better HF conditions are already here and they will only get better still as the year progresses.

I got my licence in November 2005 and I'm looking forward to experience the upcoming solar maximum!
