Very few contacts

Has anybody else noticed that the propogation is way down for the last week or so? I normally only see hits from the USA, but I get an average of 14 - 20 every day. For the last week or so, I have seen as low as 8. I checked my equipment and it seems to be working alright. Just bad propogation I suspect. I just found this interesting. I'm only beaconing, my transmitter generates too much local noise so I can't receive at the same time. I'm working on that but it's radiated from my GPS serial cable. Completely blanks my receiver. I'll get it going better after the first of the year.

Anyway, I just wanted to wish the WSPR world a Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Holidays, whatever applies to you. This has been a fun year for me, partly because of my new hobby, WSPR. Thanks so much.
