Default Excellent Propagation tonight

I'm currently picking up a strong signal from KCBS Pyongyang in North Korea on 6100 Khz, 6,647 miles from where I am. I also noticed lots of other strong signals where I normally get nothing.

I'm posting to report the unusual good propagation. Are we in a good pattern for a while, or is tonight unusual?

Default's forecast says that there will be 600km/s solar winds reaching Earth by late tomorrow, and there will be a 45% chance of geomagnetic storms on the 24th and 80% on the 25th, so there should be some nice auroras for those in the far northern and southern latitudes. The K index will be 2 to 3 (quiet.) I don't know how all of this will affect HF propagation though,

Testing to see time stamp - Is OK to delete.

While I am here, I see that my posting time stamps are 2 hours behind. Can I fix this?

Please read the sticky above about using UTC for loggings and also give your actual local time - the time you post of this forum may be hours later. - Thanks
