Sporadic E was created by G0CBO
What has happened this year 2022, normally by this time Sporadic E has kicked in and both 10 and 6 mtrs are alive.  Even quiet on FT8 mode. It seems very late this year, in previous years by about early May you can hear and work stations on these bands plus monitor the Beacons.

I know at present I have some antenna issues but have a reasonable set up for 50 mhz

Have others noticed the same

Hi Rod

Just worked 9H1TX Malta using FT8 wid 75w into a hexbem.

I gave him -02 and he gave me -04 (09:06z & 07-06-2022) .

So at last the 6m band is starting to open up HI.

Great stuff Alan, yes its finally picked up these last few days. I have been working a few on the Key on 6 mtrs as well as FT8 with  jubilee call GQ0CBO. In fact lunchtime today 07/06/22 it even opened briefly to Italy on 144 mhz FT8. We may be in for a fun few weeks with Sporadic E

Hi Rod

Been on 6m all day and have worked some interesting stns.

I did have a look at 2m but my setup is not really any good for this band so I did not stay on for very long.

I might try to go to the club tomorrow night that is if the XYL will drive me HI.
