The question came up on WIMPS - WARC Internet Monitoring and Propagation
Study. Due to a great deal of travel I didn't get as much time on 30M and
above as I wanted this summer. WIMPS was going on from June until Oct 1
and I managed about 75 Q's with 7 on 17m. I never did hear 12M open at all,
but that doesn't mean it wasn't. I saw one or two individuals post with
numbers showing a few.

We all know that 17M and 12M will get better over the next few years as
the Solar Flux comes up, and it is doing its best to stay up. H-Alpha
photos of the sun show much more activity in recent months than we have
seen in years, so it is looking good.

For the next new months 30M should be good after dark even but will
decline in number of hours the band is open after dark, but that doesn
mean you shouldn't try it out.

Keep monitoring the WARC bands, especially during contests that you are
not participating in.
