Terrestrial storms have ended in my area but are back for all of us. Managed this with Mike at US-0660 Merritt Island, FL to the shores of the Ohio River at Louisville, KY. USA

I haven't used Walt's 100 Watt 49:1 transformer in awhile. Going to take out for a ride today to see how it handles this morning's band conditions.

Rough day for most activators no matter the band. Even tough for operators. Still nice to enjoy a beautiful day.

It's Working. Only one 20m #morsecode #qrp #QSO but 20m #FT8 saved the day. Difficult syncing #GPS but so far my tools are working against the BIG BAD #geomagneticstorm #amateurradio #hamradio #pota #parksontheair

Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? Not me! These are the tools I'm throwing at the BIG BAD #geomagneticstorm for this morning's #parksontheair #pota activation. A #hb1b for #cw #morsecode, #QDX for #FT8 & #qcxmini for #wspr. EXPERIMENTATION is the foundation on which #amateurradio #hamradio was built.

@N4JAW@mastodon.radio avatar

Having a blast with some #parksontheair #pota #FT8 action today. Lots of #DX activity across both sides of the ocean. Did someone say something about a #geomagneticstorm? #amateurradio #hamradio

NOAA SWPC video of the solar flare that spawned CMEs... Expected to cause some great aurora activity, potential to also cause other mischief (mostly in space/high latitudes). Though it will probably wipe out ham radio too this weekend. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dr2BIlDGDk

AE4WX,
@AE4WX@mas.to avatar

@ai6yr Yeah, so much for . I may try a limited activation nearby just for giggles, willing to take the L if I can't get 10, but we'll see.

Heading out for some early morning #pota #parksontheair fun. Did I read something about a Severe Geomagnetic Storm Watch? ☹️ #solarcycle25 #geomagneticstorm #solarflares #AmateurRado #hamradio

It was a double barrel of fun during today's #pota #parksontheair activation. #FT8 pileup was so intense I had to stand of a bit. Even got in a little #Morsecode. #AmateurRadio #Hamradio Thanks Todd #ke2aeq @KE2AEQ for hunting me today. Great to get you in my logbook.
