Default Latest solar flare

I just read there's a fairly big solar flare...will that mean I can monkey with 10M? (just a tech, so I know it's limited)?

Default damn. that's awesome.

that could very well be the most awesome-est answer ever. I had to use "the google" quite a bit. But man, I sure learned alot. I kinda want to make that a signature quote.

Dave, thanks again for your great input on these questions.

Default Very nice

Thanks! Great sites. I still need the glossary quite a bit, but I'm finally starting understand 6m and 10m much better.

Well surprise surprise, 6 was open wide as a barn door all day and is STILL open in western CONUS. I just worked E. MI and the OR coast using a shower curtain rod (seriously a dipole made from a shower curtain rod).

Shawn, if you want to get on 6 and 10 so you can exercise you privileges, come out for Field Day.
