SWOT Net Information
All Net business should be communicated with Jimmy, N5NET. (Email Link

 
It is Full Tropo and Es Season
Tropo can occur with sudden rises in air temperature along with good cooling in the evening.
Look for stalled Cool Fronts and strong ridges of High Pressure (upper and lower) between fronts, called "Omega Blocks". These ridges provide opportunities for major openings. Tropo events in the Spring are short duration, Be on alert.
On the Propagation Page, an 84-Hour Projection loop of 500 mb Winds has been added.
We are now in the early days of Es.
Each day has a possibility for an Es opening. Be on alert.
