20 vs 40m Solar Highs n lows...
- Phil - I notice most QRP gear leans toward 40m. Is it better during the lull, as I find it very sketchy since I came back to radio in 2010? The ARRL books seem to say 20 and 40 are good all the time, and to save 10 for solar highs, 80 for lows.
Just thinking ahead to the next lull, as I have a pile of 20 meter QRP rigs, built at build day. Maybe I should build a few for the coming lull? - Mr Bob

Subject: [cascadeqrp] Favorite HF Band?
While I can't claim a 'favorite', I can say that I gravitate towards 40, and I have more 40m and 30m dedicated QRP rigs than I do the other bands. I'm more into what works best for the particular moment (propagation, time of day, time of year, etc.). Right now, seems like 20 and 15 are pretty darn good.73,Phil, WA7URV
