Sunspot group 2699 threw a surprise last week when it unleashed a C-class solar flare and a coronal mass ejection. While we have got used to having coronal hole activity, CMEs have been less prevalent over the last few months. The CME and a coronal hole solar wind stream were predicted to reach Earth by […]

Sunspot region 2699 provided us with a small increase in solar activity last week. It also produced a number of minor C and M-class flares as the solar flux index rose to around 77. More significantly, quieter geomagnetic conditions, thanks to a lack of coronal holes, meant the K-index remained fairly low and the bands […]

Solar activity remained at very low levels last week, with one barely-visible sunspot group pushing the sunspot number to a maximum of 13 and the solar flux index to 69. Geomagnetic conditions were largely settled, with some coronal hole activity pushing the K-index to three at times. Despite the low SFI, there was band activity […]

News last week that the Republic of Kosovo (Z6) has been added to the DXCC list of current entities meant that QSOs with the new prefix were in demand. With Z60A on the air from Pristina until 4 February, there has been a sudden interest in propagation paths to the country! VOACAP Online shows that […]
