It is hard to think it is already March. Where does the time go? In about 6-8 weeks it will be the Es season again here in the northern hemisphere. I am sure time goes quicker as we get older.
Solar flux is 81 today and the sunspot number 39. A=8 and K=3.
See http://www.solen.info/solar/. Solar activity is slowly declining, but this is a very slow process. Conditions on the higher HF bands are often better than many think.
