F2

Much higher in the ionosphere than the E layer you will find the F2 layer allowing you to reach any corner of the world by utilizing multiple jumps. Unfortunately the F2 layer is only useful and active around the maximum of the solar peak, which is every 11th year if we talk 50 MHz. With expected weaker solar peaks ahead F2 is a mode most of us will not experience to a greater extent. If we are fortunate there will be a few openings around the next peak, but who knows what they will bring.
