    Yeah!  I'm hoping for two or three more at least!

    According to some of the sun spot cycle predictions our sun is entering into a new phase of its life.  Sun spot cycles will be diminishing from this point forward.  The likelihood of having a decent cycle in the future is pretty abysmal.

    Shoot even 40 and 80 have been pretty poor here lately.  I can't imagine what it will be like if it gets worse and stays that way.

    Party pooper!  LOL.

    Thankfully with SDR's on the cutting edge and weak signal transmission and detection really starting to be fruitful and more readily accepted, we may be making contacts anyway.
