Not only is it time for VHF lo band DX, but 144 Mhz and up might skip, too - stalled weather fronts, sometimes thunderstorms and even forest fires (yes, that means you, Californians) can cause signals to skip to much longer distances than they would normally. This affects the TV and FM bands as well as hams, public service - virtually any service can be affected. Even 800 mhz can skip when the conditions are right.

We've got a wiki article on the subject - if you have a favorite link, please consider adding it to the list...

I just added one Lindsay had in his blog <ahem> ;)
