If you're in your mid 60s and up, you may never see an upswing in propagation; sad but true.
Even though the United States ranks 43rd in average life expectancy, the average life expectancy is 79.68 years. So if you are 65, this means you have nearly 15 more years to suck air on this planet if the actuarial tables are to be believed.
And speaking of averages, sunspot cycles run for about 11 years. We're not quite at the bottom of Cycle 25, but current predictions show Cycle 25's peak(?) should come some time in mid-2024 which is about 8 years from now.
15 - 8 = 7. This means that the average American will indeed see the next "peak" and a significant portion of the down side of Cycle 25.
