Brother, do you believe?

"Pesnell believes that the reduced solar activity is the result of a small trough at the top of the peak and that solar activity will re-ignite as the year moves onward."

Ta, ta! Most unscientific!

Pesnell believes. Well, la de da! He believes.

Where are all the scientific studies? Where is the body of evidence? Double peaked, eh? Well, why not triple peaked, quadruple peaked, multi-peaked, no peak at all?

Ah, remember the stock wizards' caveat? Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

To all my ham buddies out there, the tender-footed atheists included, remember only God turns the big knob on the Sun.

Gee, isn't that great? I mean all this scientific huff and puff, and what can they say for certainty?

At least as far as Old Sol goes, it sure looks like they are ever searching and never quite finding the truth.

Ah, the uncertainty of it all! It adds zip to ham radio and ratchets up the challenges.

Trolling?

Yeah he's trolling! He thinks he knows more that a solar physicist at Goddard Space Flight Center. What a tool.

This will be an interesting year to observe with regards to the sun. Yes, there will probably be a double peak for Cycle 24. The question will be how high will this second peak be? Will it be like the peak that occurred during the Fall of 2001 when there was solid Ten Meter F-layer activity and long streches of daily Six Meter F2 activity (from November 2001 through January 2002. It will be interesting to see. I am hoping for SOME F2 activity on Six Meters.

There is nothing that I would like to see more than a strong, long lasting Solar peak. Frankly I am tired of reading all the "scientific" excuses for the present and the speculations for the near future of Solar activity. We have had so, so much of this dribble.

Instead of needing pep talks to keep up our faith in more Solar activity, it is nice to take it one day at a time. After all, with or without long winded and empty articles, we can't take it any other way, now can we?

If you get excited by reading one article after another about hanging in there for a higher peak, or twin peaks, or a super peak, that's fine by me. Whatever keeps you going, but wouldn't it be better just to Get On The Air? Wouldn't it be a good idea if every time you get on a band, any band, not just six or ten meters, that you at least call CQ once before you get off the band? Wouldn't that go a long way to increasing traffic on the bands, regardless of Sun spot speculation?

Isn't it better to take the positive steps within your power to increase band traffic than to sit back and read and comment on one article after another that produces nothing at all?

Now, if this is trolling, you can go ahead and call me a troll.

There is more than one expert that thinks there will be a double peak. This is not an exact science so I defer to those who know a lot more than me. Propagation is what it is, I hope they are right and not cry over spilt milk.

Buy a better receiver and it won't matter.....unless the guy on the other end doesn't buy a better receiver! To some extent, based on what we used yesterday, we can make our own propagation with better antennas and gear. If ever contact was a given what fun would that be? In radio sporting, all that matters to me is that the solar indices are the same for everybody and some guys don't get sf200 while the rest of us are stuck with sf95! 73's all de Ray........
 
Astrophysics or Astrology?

Perhaps, Ray, AI2IA, has hit the proverbial nail on the head. With no basis other than "I think there will be a second peak" (in the present cycle), such speculation invarably links together all practitioners of star gazing and planet alignments. Scientific or otherwise.

I'll be happy with a few QRP 10M contacts. A nice one was had here two days ago with WP3DX on 28.54. I regularly hear Puerto Rican 10M FM repeaters here in AL, but can't key them up as of yet. 29.6 FM simplex has been a disappointment so far.

73,

Lee

But I don't want to have to buy a new receiver. Wasn't "Twin Peaks" a kind of crazy TV show a few years ago ("Roaring Nineties")?
