Hmmm Id guess Monday, Shopping, end of the month almost, low sunspot number, But this forum is getting new members and I would think that because it is new is the main reason.

I think it will make it. The membership seems to be growing rather nicely.

You can always try moving, last I heard propagation is dependent on location and sunspots.

The joke is this...there was no one posting on the forum one evening, and on this same evening the high frequency propigation was very poor (doesn't matter why) so the OP was comparing the lack of forum activity to the lack of activily on 20 meters (about 14 MHz) which usually provides interesting world wild communications.

The joke then continues with people telling the OP to check his mic, antenna, ect
