2021 Winter Sporadic E Propagation
« on: November 13, 2021, 1609 UTC »
Just a quick FYI. The winter session of Sporadic E propagation is approaching. Usually around mid to late December into early January. It is rarely up to summer Es levels, but some of ya'll 10m and 6m ops might find DX opportunities. Consider keeping a radio slightly squelched and parked on 28400, 50125, etc. during the upcoming weeks.
