Yearly Stats

To sum it all up in one short succinct statement, I believe comparing stats for each year shows the sunspot cycle fairly accurately. Of course other factors enter in as well. The amount of time on the air is a big factor, but it has been pretty uniform over the years in my case. The time of day the activity takes place is another factor. I could go on and on listing different factors, but I think sunspots and the resultant propagation are the biggest factors for the cycle in the stats in the tables below.

When the table became too wide to prevent sideways scrolling, I split the table into two segments with the latest years from 2015 to the present at top and the earlier years from 1995-2014 at the bottom.

The more years I add to this table, the more a graph of its values resembles a graph of the sunspot cycle, especially the figures dealing with DX on the higher bands - 20 meters and above. Asian and European QSO's most of all. However it also naturally depends on the other factors listed in the previous paragraph.

At some point, I decided to add a line to the table showing the average daily Solar Flux number so those studying the table can see how SF affected the stats for each year.

A red number indicates the highest number for that category. I still have a couple categories to figure for 2023.
