Cycle 25 DX-World published a plot from NOAA last month showing the progresson of Solar Cyle 25. Thus far, it has outperformed NOAA's official forecast for 35 consecutive months. DX-World says that if this trend continues, Solar Maximum will either happen sooner or be stronger than originally expected. Let's hope for both!

If you are a user of WSJT-X, please note that the webpage home has moved to https://wsjt.sourceforge.io/. Also, the general release of v2.6.0 was announced on January 6. And v2.6.1 has since been released. This replaces the release candidates (RC versions). Release notes can be found here. The list of enhancements and bug fixes is quite long, so you'll want to read through them. As you probably know, different versions of WSJT-X can be installed in different folders if you like, preserving the older versions in case of trouble. Or, you can let it install over the top of your existing installation. I recommend the former but it's up to you.

SCCC logo The CQ Contest Committee published the raw CQWW DX CW contest scores in early December, just over a week after the contest itself. Raw scores are of course before log checking. Ken, K6LA (VY2TT) has a narrow lead over EF6T for 6th place SOABHP. Jim, N6TJ (KH7Q) has a commanding lead in SOHP 15 meters! As an aside, AA3B (V26K) recorded a stunning 9,000 QSO, 13.3M point effort (averaging 187.5 QSOs per hour over the 48 hour contest) as a SOABLP station (that's LOW POWER, folks) station using 2BSIQ! That's more than double the runner up score in that category and fourth highest Single Op score overall. Just amazing! Check out the rest of the Top Ten scores here.
