Happy Summer Solstice! Summer officially kicks-off today even though the heat and humidity has been unbearable for most of our Spring. From this point forward the days will be getting shorter and we’re finally on our way to Autumn, driving the air-conditioning hard every step of the way.

This E-season has not disappointed radio fans who are taking advantage of the higher frequency openings. Reports of increased activity on 50MHz and up has got our propagation-starved fraternity fired-up. I got an email just last night from a buddy who lives on the western slopes of Colorado telling me that he finally worked Rhode Island via 6m last night on a double-hop.

Fingers crossed that Field Day operations with 6 and 2 meter stations will be pleasantly surprised this weekend!
