Recent solar storm

Well she did throw the dummy out of the pram other day. The sun that is.

Saw something yesterday never come across before.
While working a Austrian Sota yesterday my freq wandered off from where I was trying to work him by 10KC in either direction. Made it a little harder but still got through. Even later in day it did it again while listening to another station.

Yet despite the storms still working those Sota,s yesterday and today.


Interesting description of that on today:

The signal disruption happened on this radio path at 04:46 UTC (about 15 minutes after the CME arrived) and shifted the frequency of mine and other signals which were traversing that path.

Presumably Doppler shift. Its a shame I was away in LD or I’d have been looking for Ar DX on VHF. Did anybody hear any Ar DX?


Hi Brian, yes I did F, ON & DJ. I did not try to work anything because of my situation health wise
