Biography

Thanks for looking up my pages.

I am sure that the Solar Cycle 24 ended in 2015. If the Sunspot Number were to be over 100, the 10-meter band might open around the world. In case over 200, the 6-meter band might open around the world. However, we no longer expect such propagation until next cycle circa 2023. We must wait at least 4 years starting on Solar Cycle 25. I found the dual peaks both on December 2011 and on February 2014 on Solar Cycle 24. Despite the fact that Solar Cycle 24 was the lowest solar activity during 100 years according to the data by NASA https://www.nasa.gov/ , I have achieved satisfied results on the cycle 24 owing to the advanced technology such as DSP chips and improved antennas. I will focus on the bands under 20 meters until next cycle.

We look forward to having the higher solar activity on Solar Cycle 25.

Wishing you a good DXing in 2019,

Ken

I started Ham Radio in 1965, when I was a junior high school student. I have visited over 50 foreign countries so far.
