It seams that things are still going wrong globally this year. Too many unpleasant events around the world. Most of them out of ham radio world, but severe ones to affect it. We are just sitting speechless waiting when things will get better.
A thing that kept me busy last days was the good TEP openings. Yes we are near the equinox and the sun is active enough to give us the opportunity to work again long distance stations on 6m. This is an example of how I caught ZS6CCY on my 5 elements mono, a couple of days ago.
It is nice that whatever is happening, hams always have a window to open in order to have fun.
