responsible thing to do - watch our website. Contact David G7URP This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Our hobby depends on Propagation to send and receive signals and tonight we will find out about The Hale Cycle - George Hale's theories which showed that sunspots were strongly magnetised and usually subject to 11 year cycles which if true means that the Sun cycle we are just entering is due to be a great one!

The Hales Cycle presentation is given by Dr Scott Mcintosh who is the Deputy Director of the National Center for Atmospheric Research and this is immediately followed by a general Propagation Q&A for you with our own Steve Nichols G0KYA, so have those propagation questions ready!


Please don't forget to send us your own stories, projects or pictures (and your shack if you have not already done so) to reach Tammy and David by 3pm Wednesday latest:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
