Please vote from a scientific perspective not what you desire from father Xmas.
The poll will run for 30 days.

Sorry, but to me it is not entirely clear what we are asked to vote on :?:

Reading between the lines it appears we vote on our prediction for the "quality" or "results" we expect on 6M from the 2009/10 summer's Es season?

A less than subtle hint would be appreciated! :?

... or maybe I should just check "Brain dead" right now :lol:

I voted brain dead, because I still have no clue as to what the point of it is? :wink:

Me, I takes what I gets. There isn't a box for undecided or no opinion.

Roger, you are the expert, what do you think.

Wel for one hearing multi hop e's is different but as some of the leading 6M dxers in VK3 comment

"It is as we always expected no activity".

We can produce examples of FO8, KH8 5W1 heard and worked during the summer off cycle.


What people need to realise is there is no points or pride for working same stuff every day every opening.

Seems like people are trying to score points or it somehow enhances you operator standing.

What? hogging a Pacific station you have worked before while a VK6 stands by at an extra two hops.

I suggest the poll should be 'do 6M occupants have a situational awareness?

or as one dxer told me today "they have no worldly concept."

Think outside the square.

While you waste time with an already worked on a rare one could be waiting and trying to break in but is too weak to do so.
