Band Condidtions

This excerpt from todays ARRL Propagation
"Right now is a fairly good time for long-distance HF communications, because the geomagnetic field is mostly stable, sunspots haven't disappeared, and we are close to the Autumnal Equinox. Running intercontinental paths with ACE-HF propagation software shows very little in the way of openings on the upper bands above 20 meters, with the best bets on 40, 30 and 20 meters."
I have been having a ball on 40m in the morning between 6:30 and 9 local.

Played in the WAE DX SSB Contest a while this afternoon. Just S&P, but enjoyed it. There were some big signals out of EU on 20M.
