This morning at 03:57 UTC sunspot 1261 produced an M9 flare and an energetic CME is directed towards the Earth, it is expected to reach us at 13:55 UTC tomorrow (give or take some hours) and it is estimated that the planetary K-index (Kp) will reach 7. This will impact HF propagation and probably generate some aurora. More details on

Hi Brian,

I was just looking at that myself, certainly 40m & 80m are in very good shape tonight, I don’t think they will be as good over the weekend though :wink:

Best 73,
