[AMRadio] Couple of questions:

The past few days 40 meters has been weird.  I have a daily schedule at 1:PM 
on forty meters with a station 120 miles away and the past few days, until 
today, we could not contact each other at all.  Forty was long each day but 
today was fine with a few low fades.  I regularly tune up to 20 through 10 
and there is a lot of activity on 20 but nothing on the upper bands.

About the only time I tune around on 75 is late afternoon and evenings but 
don't hear a carrier.  Maybe someone testing a new piece of equipment near

1.  Bands seem to stink today (I'm talking about HF).  Anyone know if
there was some kind of solar disturbance like a CME?

2.  There's been a continual dead carrier on 3888 for the past several
days.  It fades in and out so I know it isn't local.  Anyone know
what's up with that?

Thanks 73
