What happened to 6m TEP ?

We are at equinox and we have experienced virtually no TEP this season.

The experts are now talking about Maunders minimum and many other solar experts think the downturn is linked a different phenomenon, the Gleissberg cycle, which predicts a period of weaker solar activity every century or so. If that turns out to be true, the sun could remain unusually quiet through the middle of the 2020s.

This is indeed depressing news; let us hope they have it wrong. Just imagine if we have a second peak in April/May 2014 that results in a SFI > 200 

Now that would be fantastic…..
