    Increasing Solar Activity in Cycle 25 == DX fun!

    Posted: 01 Nov 2021 01:18 PM PDT

    Solar Cycle 25 is well underway with Sunspot Numbers at values not seen in
    six years! (Above the prediction for this early in the cycle 25).  Ive been having fun on all the higher frequency bands recently, with 10/12/15 open
    at least part of the late morning and afternoon every day. https://www.swpc.noaa.gov/products/solar-cycle-progression

    I continue to try and reach my goal of 1500 band-points for the DXCC Challenge.  As of this morning I am sitting at 1486.  I just counted, and
    in the last two weeks Ive worked 18 new countries on various bands (mostly 12m).  Seven of them are for the excellent 3DA0RU DXpedition, which will
    show up when their logs are uploaded to LotW.
