Last week saw a mixed bag in terms of HF propagation. At the beginning, quiet geomagnetic conditions saw the HF bands alive with DX. With the K-index hovering between zero and one, the ionosphere was showing what it can do during a typical autumn day. There were openings up to and including 12 metres, with […]

Last week saw sunspot activity remain fairly stable, with the solar flux index hovering in the upper 80s. There were no solar flares and so no associated coronal mass ejections either. On the whole, geomagnetic conditions were a little more settled than they have been of late and other than a K-index of four on […]

Last week was a mixed bag in terms of HF propagation. With the solar flux index just into the 90s, amateurs were able to take advantage of the improving autumnal conditions. At times, maximum usable frequencies over a 3,000km path were stretching up to and beyond 21MHz, with openings to the US being reported on […]

Last week saw sunspot numbers decline, but geomagnetic conditions become more settled. This, plus the fact we are heading into autumn, resulted in better HF conditions, with 21MHz opening to DX for short periods. The CS3B Madeira and 4X6TU Israel beacons on 21.150MHz were both audible at times and Jim, G3YLA reports working S01WS in […]
