For propagation predictions to 3Y0C, click on nearest area to your QTH

I did a seperate prediction for Dec, Jan, Feb, and March so you can see how the propagation will change for you as we move towards the Equinox. Since this has more effect of proagation than a swing of 20-50 points in the SFI, I left the SFI of 190 in all predictions as a good referance base.

If you have not been able to hear Chuck, listen here.

Since pickup date/time will be based on the weather on Bouvet, I will 
try to keep up with the weather in that area, and show it here daily.

The pickup date/time is dependent on the storm near Bouvet now.

The RV Lance is expected to arrive at Bouvet at 0800Z, Mar 4. They
will start loading at that time if weather is acceptable. Chuck will
get word back to us when he is aboard the ship.
