I currently operate on 2 m, 70 cm, and 33 cm FM. In June 2018 I got involved with DMR and in January 2021, I switched from DMR to D-Star, and I am having a great time! I'm building a 900 MHz, (33 cm), repeater which is almost finished. With my new privileges as an Extra Class, I will get back on CW & SSB very soon.

Good Morning Folks! The Sunspot Number has jumped up to 186. The Solar Flux Index has risen to 188. A CME hurled into space by yesterday's fusillade of X-flares will strike Earth early next week, probably on June 4th. Its impact could spark a strong G3-class geomagnetic storm with auroras at mid-latitudes. Chance of flares today: 75% for M-Class, 35% for X-Class.

Good Morning Folks! The Sunspot Number has dropped to 126. The Solar Flux Index has risen to 171. NOAA forecasters say that G2-class geomagnetic storms are possible on May 31st when a CME hurled into space by yesterday's X-flare grazes Earth's magnetic field. Chance of flares today: 75% for M-Class, 35% for X-Class.

Good Morning Folks! The Sunspot Number has risen to 119. The Solar Flux Index has risen to 156. Sunspot Number AR3691 has doubled its size since yesterday and has a magnetic field that harbors energy for X-Class solar flares. The chance of an earth-directed eruption will increase as the sunspot turns toward our planet this week. Chance of flares today: 40% for M-Class, 5% for X-Class.
