Little activity

Post by theme » 17 Jun 2018 10:31

It's just the 17th of June, and it looks like there's been almost no ES activity on Band II lately, based on what I see on the FMlist logbook. Might the season be already over? Is tropo the only thing left from the summer? Yes, I know that's SPORADIC, but from this time of the summer I'd expect a little more.

You are becoming a Band II dxer. The ability to moan about lack of Es and Es in the wrong direction is of vital importance! :D :D :D

It's band II dxing - complaining about no Es in April and wondering if the season is over before the summer solstice... Welcome to the club!

Is tropo the only thing left from the summer?
There was no tropo, as such, from Mid November 2017 to early May 2018 - so who knows what we will get.

BTW - Finland doesn't seem to bad a spot for SpE either.

I don't think so. Remember August can still be a good month for E Skip, in one season from the past it was better than the rest. I just hope I am not wrong this time round.
