Is Cycle 24 Flatlining? - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

Hi All

Back in January we were all throwing our hats in the air to greet Cycle 24 as the first rotationally repeated Flux peak was registered. As the old song goes: "The Sun has got his hat on, hip-hip-hurray, the Sun has got his hat on and he's coming out to play".

Since this date, the wretched Cycle 24 flux graph has flat-lined. Is the patient dead?

Or is this just a Near Death Experience, and the heart beat will shortly re-start?

Wake up Sun. The Ten metre band fraternity and all Aurora enthusiasts need you.

Maybe that's why we're having the snowiest winter on record in the northern latitudes?

Well, Rip van Winkle Sun is still fast asleep.

OK, having stated the obvious, here's something much less obvious.

The only burst of solar 2800MHz flux this year seems to have occurred around March 22nd. Check it out on

http://www.dxlc.com/solar

Waiting patiently for 27 days I expected to see the repeat: result zip, diddly, nada.

54 days later, oualou, rien, nichts, semmi.

Recently on sciencedaily.com I read about the most hugemongous explosion ever recorded: a gamma ray burst on 19th March directed from billions of lightyears away exactly in line with the earth, and therefore, get this, with the sun. It lasted a few seconds and wizzed on at the speed of light. Three days later, the sun yawned, spewed out an extra 20 Solar Flux Units at 2800MHz and went back to sleep.

Question: was this a "soliton" wave reaction by the sun to the enormous gamma-ray energy that hit it like a HiVel bullet? have there been others?

Am I the only person to bother about such things?

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
