We mailed close to 250 envelopes with stickers in them, and to date, three have been returned as bad addresses.  I need to confirm the correct mailing address with the following to ensure our records are correct.

N8FL - our data has your address as RT1 Box 130a1 in Glenwood WV.  It was returned to sender.

N3UYI - our data has your address as 247 Sweet Gum Drive, Chelsea AL

WB8YXF - We have you as 3311 Galberry Rd. Chesapeake VA, it was forwarded to 233 Jessamine Pl MCGayheysville VA and returned.

Please help us update our records to show the corrrect address.  In a couple of cases, QRZ does not even match.

Many thanks for membership package and stickers. One more thing for my wife to laugh about, but as I get older (now 71) there may be a time when I look back on all my papers buried in a box in the closet with fondness. Any stickers you happen to send me will keep your stuff at the top of the pile.

Great memories of past cycles ! Wish they were still with us.

Worked JY5ZM, Zuheir, back in 1980 on q20m plus about 8 others over the years. Was in pile up for Hussein , JY1, but never got through.

Thanks,

Believe me!...all JY stations are not the same!
I actually met JY1 at a reception for him in New Orleans at their consulate. His cousin, JY3ZH, Zedan Hussein had a son that was a student at LSU, in petroleum engineering. I'd run phone patches for them when our path's crossed a few times a week. Zedan ran the "African Knight's Net" on 20 meters and would bring up different North African stations.
JY3ZH asked me if I had a tuxedo, then I got an invitation to a dinner party at their Consulate.
JY1 was very nice, cordial, and extremely friendly when I was introduced to him as a ham. I received a standing invitation to visit him and his shack in Amman, if I happened to be passing through. 
HIS QSL CARDS ARE STILL AVAILABLE VIA:
QSL via N2OO 
PO Box 345, Tuckerton, NJ 08087 USA
Bob asks that you email him 1st @  n2oo@... 
JY1 was forced into exile a few years later and died from cancer a few months after that. That was like 35 + years ago. 
Great memories...20m was open 24/7 to someplace. 10m & 15m open 18 hours a day and  80m & 40m open worldwide 2X everyday at greyline.
Just give me one more Solar Cycle like that!

Jerry,

Stupid me, I had it in a frame, she got the dog too.  Had a cheap lawyer.  hi hi

I had just finished running phone patches for McMurdo AFB, Antartic, abt  3 AM local time when he called me, thought it was a pirate station because of no suffix  which he later said he was number one so he didn't need one.  Told him I was a Radio Shack mngr at the time and he told me he had one of everything they sold which I didn't believe until he told me what he did for a living.  Made the mistake of calling him Your Majesty and got the lecture that there are no titles or royalties in amateur radio, just first names and mine's Hussein.  It was a friendly chewing out.

We also need a good sunspot cycle for the benefit of new hams who will forever think that hitting 2 meter repeaters using a shack on the belt is the only game in town.

If wishes were horses beggars would ride. Let's be hopeful that propagation will get better because for some of us it may be our last sunspot cycle unless we can build a time machine and go back to the glory days. Hi ! Hi !

Good morning,
So far in my my 40 plus years trying to figure out how propagation works, only one person has really caught my attention on predicting what the next Solar Cycle will do.
I had the honor and pleasure to be the opening presentation at the 2011 Central States VHF Society in Irving Texas. My presentation (Spring/Summer Seasonal Es) was followed by a presentation from Jim Kennedy. K6MIO. Jim is a Astrophysicist 
He forewarned us that Cycle 24 was going to be poor. The reason was that the reversal of the Solar Poles (Fields) were badly out of sync. He was right on.
The greater the magnitude of the separation will result in a stronger and more active Cycle. The peak occurs when these fields cross, but strength depends on a long journey (magnitude between the 2 at minimum).
If you look at the current charts from the Wilcox Solar Observatory, http://www.solen.info/solar/polarfields/polar.html
the Polar Fields have now reversed (solar minimum reached). The magnitude between the Fields was greater than Cycle 24, but less than Cycle 23.
Therefore they have predicted that Cycle 25 will lie in between the two.
I would say maybe a few 6 Meter F2 openings, but not enough to write home about.
There was to my knowledge, only one Trans-Continental F2 opening on 6 Meters during Cycle 24. Sadly the Ham that worked it became a Silent Key 3 months later.

I do not expect a wonderful Solar Cycle. 10 Meters will still be a Hoot. I had some wonderful Fall and Winter 10M PSK31 PropNET and WSPR captures in 2014-2015.
I think most of what is published is Wishful Thinking or Fake News :)
