If you wish to get a prospective of how propagation is doing this Fall and Winter, I have begun my weekly reporting of what I am seeing here in North Texas on 10 Meters.
PropNET Studies Blog:
I use my 10 Meter PropNET PSK31 captures to compile this info. Your results may vary, but is intended to give you an idea of what 10 Meters is capable of doing during the Fall and Winter when F2 MUF rises. I will report weekly and will add some 2011-2012 comparison charts soon.
The F2 season has already taking off and Europe to North American activity is more than the same time last year. Solar flux is a little down, but geomagnetic activity is more quiet.
