The sunspots have open up the HF frequencies to where amateur radio stations from around the world are coming in loud and clear.


I have spent most of my free time on the radio contacting other "Hams" around the world. I use both Voice and Morse Code. It is quite exciting to talk with someone from another country, even if it is a quick hi and bye contact.


Another amateur radio operator friend of mine here in town is a doctor. He and I are sort of competing to see who can make the most contacts. So, far he is ahead a little bit, but of course he lives in the country where the sky is open to his antenna instead of being among trees in a city.


Being that the bands we operate on are so open, there has not been much time or effort to get back on the rewrite. I am up to chapter 14, so it is a slow process and of course this distraction doesn't help.  But, winter is coming and not being able to go and do things will free up some time for the rewrite.
