How's the band? - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Bottom of the sunspot cycle, so working people do not really have a chance on 10m.
Hopefully soon the power company will fix the line noise and I will be able to get on. I am now working for myself out of my home lab so I could get on 10m at lunch hours etc.
I have gotten hooked on 30m and 40 QRP lately.

Yeah, this sun-spot shortage is a real bummer.

However, a recent allband cw contest brought some weak and wobbly US signals across the pond to Europe in December.

Time to start building the next VLA (Very Large Antenna) ready for the SpE season on 10

    Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
