How to Read the Data Below
(Y) means Yes and (N) means no. In the example above, 50mhz opened 5 out of the past 9 years on June 8th between 2004-2012. This gives us an opening average of 55%. This would mean an opening consisting of more than 5 contacts between multiple stations located in the eastern half of North America and mainland Europe was observed on that specific day and year.
At the bottom of each monthly data chart, you will find the total amount of "Yes" days during a specific month and year. In the example above you will see the total amount of openings for a specific month and year. In the month of June 2006, 19 of the 30 days seen an opening between eastern North America and mainland Europe. If you add each years total "Yes" days for the month of June and calculate an average, you get 16.6 days. This means that the month of June has seen an average of 16.6 daily openings since 2004.
