SWOT Net Information
All Net business should be communicated with Jimmy, N5NET. (Email Link

 
It is Tropo Season and Es Season Begins 
Tropo can occur with sudden rises in air temperature along with good cooling in the evening.
Look for stalled Cool Fronts and strong ridges of High Pressure (upper and lower) between fronts. These ridges provide opportunities for major openings.
Watch as the stormy systems move West to East. Spring is a great time for Tropo
.
The Spring/Summer Es Season begins in late April. By early May, be aware that any Es opening can intensify and become a 2-Meter opening. Be on alert, listen on 10, 6 & 2 Meters, and make some noise.
