Solar activity

 The sun has been really active again so far the last few days, with a sunspot number in the 3 digit range again, and multiple C and M class flares so far. Bands have been really quiet up here in the Pacific Northwest, at least at my QTH. Their have been a few stations that have punched threw, but overall, not the usual conditions. Hoping to get the tri-band beam cleaned up and up in the air soon. Hope to put it on a 35ft mast with a rotor, so I can spin that bad boy around and work some DX on 20-15-10M.
