How well do you understand HF propagation? Comments please!
[219 votes since 2017-11-21]
  I'm blissfully unaware of how little I know.
  I realize how little I know but would like to learn more.
  I know some stuff, but realize I need to learn more. I can't really explain it well to anyone.
  I know a lot and can explain it to a 4th grader.

Spotlight The Wireless Bunker of N3MMH
The Wireless Bunker of N3MMH Greetings! Originally licensed December 2003 as KB3KNV. Then in August of 2004, I changed to my vanity callsign that was my (SK) Grandfathers call, Daniel McLaughlin. I was lucky enough to get some of his equipment and will always be greatful to him for infecting me with the hobby. I thought it would be my little tribute to him by keeping his call in the family. Rigs include Kenwood TM-G707 Dual Band (currently running mobile), an Icom 706MKIIG with an LDG Electronics AT-200Pro auto tuner, Icom IC-V8000 and a Kenwood TS-140S HF connected to the MFJ-949E Versa Tuner II. For polluting the RF spectrum and depending on band conditions, I use either an Inverted "V" configured Radio Waves G5RV Lite (80m-6m) or a Maldol HVU-8. For 2m/70cm I use a Comet GP6. The mic is a Shure 55SH Series II going into a Eurorack UB802 mixer. All QSL's will be gladly accepted and returned in kind. Cheers & 73!

 
Strays Add a Stray!
For many Hams, less than 1500W is QRP while others say 5W is QRO.
