If the current solar cycle is making HF operations difficult and tedious, why not try some of the Amateur Radio microwave bands, such as the popular 10 GHz Band (X-Band)?  Equipment is readily available and instructional videos such as this one are available online.  With the advent of improved antennas, better transceivers, and manageable power supplies, it's possible to make many daily contacts via EME, meteor scatter, and knife-edge refraction. In this video, Gordon West (WB6NOA) and Tim Tucker (AE6LX) demonstrate the antennas, feed lines, transceivers, and operating procedures that will insure you success on this microwave band.
