11m DX October 2016


Still some autumn DX to be had, even though we are on the way down this year, there is till some NA and WI workable. Quite exciting trying to find contacts emoticon

Also E layer is till fairly active as we move away from summer, so although quieter, 11m is still active a great deal on and off

Re: 11m DX October 2016


We had some 11m working conditions yesterday into SA, and AF. EU E layer still around as well. It was quiet on and off, but overall I managed a few contacts including one into 164 division.

Re: 11m DX October 2016


Although we are on the downward side of the cycle, there is still working conditions on 11m nearly everyday at some point. E layer prop is still around for short hop contacts within EU, and there is the beginnings of autumn prop from the east during the mornings, with olga starting to be heard on 11m.

Also some EU stations are starting to spot NA and WI in the west during the afternoons. This will get better, although not as strong as last year by any means.

The sun still has some activity left in it and there are still 40 SSN and other factors mean 11m is not yet dead and buried at the very bottom of the cycle.

When we start Freebanding, or The Foxtrot Bravo DX Group ten years ago it was right at the bottom of the cycle, its not too long before we start the climb out of the bottom, so although the doom sayers are predicting years of quiet 11m band. That is unlikely to happen as even after it hits rock bottom in a year or so, there is the steady increase in activity after that in just a few months.

So plenty of DX to be had even as the cycle begins to close and the new one starts to open.
