Re: File - Any Reports on 30 mtr contacts?
First I want to thank those always willing to share their reports and contacts every few weeks on the 30 Meter Band...always good to see those posts and band activity.
I for one have been too busy with the kids and summer to be very active so sorry about that but I have noticed that when I do have a chance to get on the band there is usually activity somewhere on the 30 Meter Band. From here noticed less NA traffic and my 30m auto spots also backing that up....even EU I think are still very active but less so in the last months from what I have seen on 30 Meters.
What I have seen is an increase of CW traffic on the lower half and also more robust wider modes used above 10.142 to 10.144 so that is also good to see....now where is the increase of sun spots?
Maybe in the fall/winter we will see more activity on 30 Meters for NA ops and heck maybe in 2011 we will see an increase of sun spots and propagation (we have been hoping this for 2 years now!).
Have fun on the band and reports, observations, ideas on activity about 30 Meters welcome.
