Saying of the day: “SWR have absolutely nothing what so ever to do with an antennas performance as a radiating entity.
The SWR is ONLY a measure of the antenna impedance! A metallic painted potato can be made to have 1:1.0 SWR - but don't expect it to radiate.”
SOLAR ACTIVITY UPDATE: After unleashing one of the brightest X-ray flares in years on Saturday afternoon, Nov. 6th, sunspot 1121 took Sunday off. No strong flares were recorded for the rest of the weekend. Nevertheless, the active region's magnetic field is complex and harbors energy for more eruptions. NOAA forecasters estimate an 85% chance of M-flares during the next 24 hours
Conditions were poor this morning. I didn't hear too much on 17 and 20 meter. Though I worked a special station IR7WFF with CW on 20 meter.
