LATEST COMMERCIAL NEWS:

We have several substantial orders to complete over the next 3 to 4 months. Due to our age (in the 70’s) we have decided that when these orders are completed we will totally clear the store/workshop of all items including radios/test eq/spares/cores/PTFE wire etc etc. We are well over stocked with many thousands of items and we will start to list the stock at giveaway prices starting in October on the special offers page (mainly collection only otherwise we will be packing/shipping for years). Thank you for your business over many many years. Janet & Geoff Brown

NEW SUNSPOT PREDICTION NEWS

AUGUST 4th:

SOLAR MAX MIGHT COME A YEAR EARLY: Solar Cycle 25 is heating up faster than expected. The latest sign may be found in sunspot counts from July 2021. Continuing a trend that started last year, they overperform the official forecast:

Issued by the NOAA/NASA Solar Cycle 25 Prediction Panel in 2019, the official forecast calls for Solar Cycle 25 to peak in July 2025. However, a better fit to current data shows Solar Cycle 25 peaking in October 2024. This is just outside the 8-month error bars of the Panel’s forecast.

July 2021 was a remarkable month. Solar Cycle 25 crossed multiple thresholds, including its first X-flare and, at one point, 6 sunspots on the solar disk. The last time so many sunspots were seen at the same time was Sept. 2017 (SWx archive). One farside CME in July was so strong it affected Earth despite being on the “wrong” side of the sun. A handful of other CMEs narrowly missed our planet……Coutesy of Spaceweather.com
