Default Major Geomagnetic storm

Don't be too surprised if your favorite station is hard to hear, or not there at all.....

Yesterday evening, 2100local/0900UTC here was very quiet to the East and West but the Chinese stations were booming in - I even found one in English! WWVH on 5 and 10MHz was burbling - 15MHz inaudible.

Again too cloudy to see anything of the Aurora.

It would appear we're not out of the woods yet - while the spot that caused the blackout this week is rotating away, I have a report of yet another huge X8 flare happening at 1610 UT on the Extreme SWL Facebook page. Hang on to your hats...Mike


[edit] Spaceweather.com just confirmed the X8 flare...more to follow when available
