SFI = 145 A = 16 K = 6

K=6 ... that's HUGE!

Aurora visible down into Ohio.

Check 6 meters and 2 meters. FM broadcast.

The aurora curtain can block northern HF paths leaving southerly stations in the clear.

Often South American medium wave stations can be heard after strong auroras.

Keep your ears open!

Just caught a blurb on FB that there could be another blast coming Earth's direction in the next day or two. Keep your ear to the ground on this one.
