Sep13 13:52 there may be some "rebound" F2 MUF effects today, but that'll likely be over just N-S paths - de WA5IYX (
Sep13 13:35 The report is here: KA3JAW FN20iq (
Sep13 13:33 There was one report of visual Au after the ending of evening twilight in central Arizona on Sept. 12 - KA3JAW FN20iq (

Sep13 11:52 Rick: Are you using an indoor AM loop or exterior longwire antenna? - KA3JAW FN20iq (
Sep13 11:42 [10:51] On the AM side, at least, we have yet to hear any effects of this so-called auroral event. If last night's efforts by myself and others are any indication, this one is turning out to be a total bust -- Rick in South Omaha EN21af (
Sep13 10:51 Extended Warning: Geomagnetic K-index of 7 or greater expected until 1600 UTC - KA3JAW FN20iq (
Sep13 10:28 Oh, and maybe while eating a samosa. Better yet.--Frank M. (
Sep13 05:26 [23:44] I haven't heard enough of this kind of DX over the decades. I'd sure love to hear sa'moa of that kind of stuff LOL--Frank M. EN40 (
Sep13 02:08 all I've done is heat up the room by turning on the Mark 6B linear and the 75-w each filaments in the 3-500z pair - de WA5IYX (
Sep13 01:43 the AR-303 rotator FedEx ETA tomorrow (I just need the control box) - de WA5IYX (

Sep13 00:31 KA3JAW any dx heard so far? LM/FM29 (
Sep12 23:57 K-index of 7 or greater expected from Sep 12 2306 to Sept 13 0700 UTC - KA3JAW FN20iq (
Sep12 23:54 The K-index is a measure of geomagnetic activity as to where the visual aurora are viewable - KA3JAW FN20iq (
Sep12 23:48 What is max K index forecasted? LM/FM29 (

Sep12 23:44 Re Oct 2003 Au - Patrick Martin in Seaside, OR picked up some of the best Aussie/NZ AM DX he heard in many years. Even Samoa full quieting! > Yakima CN96 (
Sep12 23:43 I'd love to hear those CA/NV graveyarders on AM tonight! Like I said, last time we had Au I had a 1230 near San Luis Obispo (KPRL) never heard since. > Yakima CN96 (
Sep12 23:41 it usually takes KBo 8 or 9 to give us any 2m Au this far south - de WA5IYX (
Sep12 23:34 Like to see Kp=9 - KA3JAW FN20iq (
Sep12 23:28 if Bz wud stay like at -30 this wud be an even wilder event - de WA5IYX (
Sep12 23:26 and even a couple of 220-MHz Au QSOs listed - de WA5IYX (
Sep12 23:23 plenty of 2m aurora paths now over the same US region (K9MRI is NOT 30N) - de WA5IYX (
Sep12 23:20 ah , yes, the only Kp graph that I have archived for all of 2003 - de WA5IYX (
Sep12 23:14 I need to check back to see what this gave for Kps - de WA5IYX (
Sep12 23:13 DXmaps List had Au down into Chinocoteague, Va (Northeast of Wallops Island) FM27hv at 2241 UTC on 6M - KA3JAW FN20iq (
Sep12 23:07 I think that the Kps are computed from a group of (weighted) earth-based magnetometers - de WA5IYX (
Sep12 22:55 Then it will be a KP=8 - KA3JAW FN20iq (
Sep12 22:47 GOES 15 has come close to magnetopause crossings - de WA5IYX (
Sep12 22:44 FWIW, ur area now getting 6m aurora paths - de WA5IYX (

Sep12 18:43 we it need more like this - de WA5IYX (
Sep12 18:31 Bz of +30 is not going to assist any magnetic storm from this CME - de WA5IYX (
Sep12 18:26 Es now into FM - 90.5-HIWP Dom Rep - RDS 1193 mi (
Sep12 18:21 Es - ch 2 lots of qrm between the 2 signals - noted the word "STORM" briefly across the screen - could be Haiti? de Fred SC FM03af (
Sep12 18:02 Es - ch 2 - south - zero offset - 2 carriers with fairly strong signals - likely HIJB Dom Rep de Fred SC FM03af (
Sep12 16:47 any real "fun" VHF prop wont start until/unless those GOES Hp values start rapid and deep variations - de WA5IYX (
Sep12 16:41 with under a 48-hr transit time for this CME I'll leave it to others to calculate how many km/sec that works out to - de WA5IYX (
Sep12 16:32 I don't check this plot at this time of day so can't tell if any radical depature yet from "normal" - de WA5IYX (
Sep12 16:27 DX maps plotting TY (F2 to Benin, Africa) as Es to southern Germany - de WA5IYX (
Sep12 16:18 so far strong Bt but little negative Bz to it - de WA5IYX (
Sep12 16:05 and a shorter-than-normal delay before GOES hit with it - de WA5IYX (
Sep12 16:04 2nd CME impact at ACE - de WA5IYX (
Sep12 13:24 and, as we await the 2nd, more-potent, CME - de WA5IYX (
Sep12 04:45 just some Houston Us decoding - de WA5IYX EL09ql STX (
Sep12 04:10 Tr central Florida in good - noted call change WTEV-19 now is WJAX-19 de Fred SC FM03af (
Sep12 03:17 Bz is not maintaining a strong south compnent - de WA5IYX (
Sep12 01:10 I'll check around sunset and see if those rare CA graveyarders are coming in on AM. I've got many open frequencies here but Au is extremely rare in the NW...except for the times that Dave in OR gets Missoula and Lethbridge! > Yakima CN96 (
Sep12 00:06 and at GOES now - de WA5IYX (
Sep12 00:02 first CME impact at ACE - de WA5IYX (
Sep11 22:53 FM sounds like es is going on. Very weird. Maybe some strong ms? Dan EM73QX (
Sep11 17:05 the last 6/2-m Au here was during that October 2003 magstorm event - de WA5IYX EL09ql STX (
Sep11 17:03 it takes KBo to get to 8 or 9 for any Au at our latitude - the VHF F2 MUF enhancements come with lower magstorm values - de WA5IYX (
