Band was good until dark. Hope it is the start of a long opportunity. Heard an experienced old timer say it was the best in decades.

Here in Central Florida 29.620 repeater in the Catskills was heard. Apparently some German station was also able to work the repeater.

Sounds like potent Sporadic E, ES. Not really solar influenced because 10.7cm flux been a roller coaster. Was 86sfu then dipped to 72sfu. Solar influenced openings would be more of a all day affair sun up to sun down. Yesterday's ES at my location had 3 peak times with quiet times throughout the day. Primarily early to mid-morning, early noon, and evening to sunset then went quiet.

I observed cancellation at the equator observing SDO AIA HMI Magnetogram watching north and south polarities annihilate each other as opposed to solar minimum I observed North hemisphere south polarity eats north polarity the opposite for south hemisphere. As the solar equatorial cancellation process continues I have been observing slow more steady emergence at mid latitudes. This includes emergence of Polar Crown Filament at 55 or so degrees in a hedgerow oriented in a east to west latitudinal direction.

I assume this current Earth facing side of the sun might be the 1/4th of sun that might start the hemispheric longitudinal growth in sunspot emergence but don't quote me on it. It might be a solar global event.
