That about says it all, doesn't it? And here I was, wondering why I've been hearing so little on the bands. Looks like, even though we'd be battling summer static, 80 and 40 Meters in the evenings might be the best bet for decent QSOs.
It might also do me in good stead to get something decent up in the air for 6 Meters, to take advantage of this time of year. I think that in my close to 40 years in Amateur Radio, that you can count on one hand, the number of QSOs that I've made on 6 Meters. Admittedly, up until owning my KX3, I never had 6 Meter capability before. Add to that, that I've never had a decent antenna for 6 Meters, either. I'll have to Google the subject to see if I can't homebrew something decent. Anyone have suggestions?
