Holy Hannah!

I looked at the weather forecast for the next two days - 96F tomorrow (35C) and 102F on Thursday (39C). Wow! I guess it is no coincidence that tomorrow is the first day of summer.

And wouldn't you know it ?!?  Band conditions seem to be headed right into the toilet as Field Day weekend approaches.  The Sunspot number is 66 and declining. We'll get to see of Amateurs create their "own" propagation this weekend.  Maybe with that much RF heating up the ionosphere, we won't need so many Sunspots.

The past few nights have been very good on the bands.  Tonight, the noise floor seemed to be higher and it sounded like there was less activity.  FG5FR was booming into NJ from Guadeloupe; but I worked Frantz about a week ago, so it's time to let other stations have at him.

Looks like some reading tonight and then sack time.
