Yearly Stats

2014 was again a good year for DX. I worked some DX each and every day in 2014 continuing my DX streak that started on March 1, 2013. I believe that says in a nutshell just how good conditions have been the past couple years. Unfortunately if everything works out as expected, and it has for a good many years now, the Sun should become less and less active over the next few years and conditions will follow suit and decline as well, especially on the higher bands above 20 meters or so.

The more years I add to this table, the more a graph of its values would look like the sunspot cycle, especially those items dealing with north polar path DX on the higher bands above 20 meters. Asian QSO's specifically, but to almost the same degree, European QSO's. However it also naturally depends on the amount of on-air time I put in each year. Because of the various NAQCC on-air events, I have been a bit more active in 2005-2013. Then as I worked towards retirment as NAQCC VP in 2014, my on-air time started to increase even more, especially for chasing and working DX. Even with the amount of activity not factored in though, the DX stats portray the cycle quite well.
