Solar Cycle 24

This morning one of our members mentioned the SOLARCYCLE24 web site for a source of information about the progress of the new cycle. The appearance of sunspot #1005 seemed to bring some nice short-range propagation on 40 m yesterday, but its fading seemed to relegate us to the usual 200 mile minimum for our morning QSO today.
