Could the "non-universal" or ppc64 architecture be a reason that OS-X 10.6.4 on Intel platforms runs differently?
If the code is translated to target environment on execution, could it be possible that different platforms operate differently?
Could we try a build for "Intel" only? It would be nice to see if that has any effect.

For me CME's and the like just means VHF will open up.

Andrew, Even with a K of less than 3, last night was somewhat of a surprise! Low QRN and quiet conditions, yet I hade a few contacts to the west coast onMessage 1 of 10 , Aug 4, 2010View SourceAndrew,Even with a K of less than 3, last night was somewhat of a surprise! Low QRN and quiet conditions, yet I hade a few contacts to the west coast on 12m/17m SSB and reports of 579 to 599. I only run about 60 watts into one of two rather poor verticals, one an old 4BTV with 40m resonator and only 3 28 foot radials, the other an original version R5 at only 12 feet above ground on a fiberglass military pole. From Florida I can usually get to the central states on PSK31 or Olivia and I can get to East/Central Europe with good conditions on 20m. Last night was wonderful! I just through out a CQ and had many returns. Seems like the recent CME improved the conditions, even for just a few hours.AF2M/ Mitch Baum
Hi, Well whatever the sunspot number and whatever the conditions appear to be, I try to make a habit of checking the rotating beacons on 20m at 144.100 (cw)Message 1 of 10 , Aug 4, 2010View SourceHi,
Well whatever the sunspot number and whatever the conditions appear to be, I try to make a habit of checking
the rotating beacons on 20m at 144.100 (cw) run by the Northern Cal. DX Assoc. I tend to check it late in the
evening. Am usually surprised to hear a number of beacons, often with no signal strength indicated on my rig.
Then down to the cw sub-band I go and try to make a few contacts. Have been hearing a lot of psk too, I need
to check that out more often, as I am no doubt missing some dx. As I have found on two meter ssb, and as you
no doubt know, the bands are open far more often than it seems. It's part of the fun of the hobby.
