This is not a DX Club. However,
many of us are very interested in working DX...thus this page.
Why are the HF bands dead?
Here's the April 2017 status of the Solar Cycle...
it's on its way down! If you can't hear 'em, you can't work 'em!
That's why we start with propagation.
How low can you go?
Upcoming Major DXpedition to Bouvet Island.
On behalf of the Bouvet Island DXpedition-2018, thank you for your kind
contribution of $100 USD on behalf of the North Richland Hills Amateur Radio
Please accept this small gift (download the attachment) to recognize your
important and generous contribution toward the Bouvet DXpedition-2018
expenses. As you probably know, this is likely the most expensive
DXpedition ever attempted.
It is dedicated and generous DXers like you and your club members that make
DXpeditions such as this possible, and we are pleased that the North
Richland Hills ARC is now one of our important supporters.
One of the goals of the Bouvet Island DXpedition-2018 is to provide at least
one QSO to every DXer who needs this #2 ranked DXCC entity for an all-time
new one (ATNO). Also,
we want to provide as many band/mode contacts needed by DXers as we possibly
believe we have the plan, the team and the equipment to make this happen!
Your contribution will help make all this a reality for not only our team of
DXpeditioners, but for DXers, worldwide...THANK YOU!
See you in the pileups!
For the team,
Ralph Fedor - KØIR
Bob Allphin - K4UEE
Erling Wiig - LA6VM

Sunspot Number = 308

Having said that and seen
how bad the HF bands are, try 6 meters! "Es", or
Sporadic E is still around...sometimes even on 10 meters.
