And it looks like cycle 25 is off and running.
The forecast from Dr. Skov is below:
Yeah, she can be 'over the top' a bit, but she's got gen-you-ine creds and degrees and she knows her stuff.
Solar Flux should be in the low 90's for the weekend, with some good band openings.
I've noticed more Ionospheric Sounders in operation on the 20 Meter (14MHz) band than usual, and I've even see a few on the 40 Meter (7MHz) band.
I've been hearing Danie, ZS3D, in South Africa on 40 Meters on a regular basis, and that's getting me fired up to put my big 33' vertical back up. It's a full quarter-wave on 7MHz, and with the elevated radials, works extremely well.
