Do Solar Winds from a Coronal Hole or CME only bring bad radio conditions?


We are now (at last) out of the Solar Winds, I would expect conditions to be better today and tomorrow (K is down at 1 and SFI still up at 70) until the next set of winds from a Coronal Hole arrive sometime on Sunday.

No if conditions are improved above “normal” today and tomorrow, I don’t know if this is an effect AFTER this last set of winds or BEFORE the next set !

We can only hope that the same happens next week and that the new Solar Winds clear by Friday otherwise we’re going to have a hard time in the VK-EU S2S event on Saturday the 20th.
