Hello to all. I'm on 10140 khz, my evening opening down along the west

coast states is about to begin. Its 02z I'll be calling CQ about every 15 min

or so. I'm not hearing any ft-8 signals at the moment on 10140 khz.

For those who were around in the 70’s/80’s/90’s when there was decent propagation, it was a great time to be a ham with opening on 10/15/20m to almost all parts of the world.  If I remember even the 50’s and 60’s had great propagation.  Recall reading some stuff about WWII and the propagation was excellent back then as well with shortwave listeners hearing stuff from battlefields as it happened.  In the late 1930’s, there were some stories about people in  the U.S. hearing Amelia Earhart’s plane while it was flying around looking for Howland Island.
 
Based of these reports it would appear that radio propagation was really good in those eras.

I read a report about a month ago that said we were at or very near the absolute minimum, which means, that it's almost ready to start it's ascendancy, and I know from past experience, when it starts up, it goes fast. Meaning: probably a year from now we will be seeing some really good conditions. Yes it will be several years to reach maximum, but we don't have to wait for the maximum to get good conditions.

I got my license back in 2013 which was just before the most recent solar maximum in 2014. The next maximum will be somewhere around 2025 with the prediction that it will be similar to the most recent one.... good, but not great. None of us will be alive to see conditions similar to those of the last half of the 20th century unless your name is Methuselah.

It is frustrating to see no signals at all and to call CQ with no answers. I just started in amateur radio in 2017, so conditions were already poor and I've watched them get even worse. It will be interesting to me to see what conditions are like in 5 or 6 years when there is another maximum.
