The thing is, it's sporadic, sometime it's there and sometimes it's not. Already worked VK and JA on 6m this season, and got called by FT4GL on Sat just as he faded out :banghead: Managed to catch a couple of 2m Es openings as well.

We now appear to be in a bit of a lull and it's very quiet. It should perk back up again in a day or two.

Not expecting that great a season this year, the best seasons seem to occur at solar minimum and we're at solar max. But you never know, just gotta keep watching the bands.

Been a proper year for me up to now - 61 DXCC inc USA, VE, 7Q, SU1, ZS, 9K2 amongst others, really demanding on the shack time though. My first real attempt on 6M.

Just wait until autumn: we could be in for some exciting DX on 6m if the solar figures hold up, we had the highest sunspot count of the cycle yesterday and even last autumn produced VK/DU/VU etc. Pencil in the last week of October & first week of November, that when the action usually starts to happen on the long-haul paths, although we should see plenty of TEP to South America and Africa before then.

The TEP has just returned here, usually does from mid-July onwards, and it'll pop up now and again right through Aug, Sept & Oct.
