Propagations Conditions: Experts Disagree
#1
Looking at the GBARC Propagation page this morning I noted a disagreement between 2 of the sources of propagation forecasting (see image). RIgreference.com forecasts any band above 60m as "Poor". Hamqsl.com claims "Good" conditions on 20m and 30m. Both can't be right. The best way of finding real world band conditions is to get on the air and make QSOs!

Yes, the best way is to get on the air. I have seen bands open for an hour or less and seems like 10 and 15 are opening for short bursts lately as well. 
Will be on SST this evening, probably 40 and 80.
