MLK, jr Week good for low-band DX'ing?
« on: January 11, 2024, 2131 UTC »
Oh yeah... That cold snap, for most of the week of MLK, jr. Day Week, is definitely going to suck, but on the plus side it should be decent to quiet down the lower HF, MW, and LF, bands. (I hope...) Go check out how much better 60kHz pulses of WWVB come in when those temperatures drop. See??? Take the good with the bad.
I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a buial that will satify everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.
