Conditions on the 48 metre band continue to be affected by solar activity. The A index this morning was 70 and has remained at that figure as I write this Blog. Short skip has been poor, although I did log Ronnie AM on 6235. All other stations that were being reported from NL on the Chat did not appear here. I did hear 6307 briefly, believed to be Goofy around 1745 and a little later a strong signal on 6290 that was probably J Tobacco. The station peaked at +40 db over 9 and then plunged back into the noise.

The K index was 7 this morning and 5 later in the day. The 48 metre band did not open here at all for short and short medium skip, apart from briefly when I logged Quadzilla. Coast FM on 6205 was in and out of the noise all day. It peaked just after I logged Quadzilla at 45544 and then disappeared completely a few seconds after. The 76 metre band stayed open to allow Underground to broadcast a show with some nice music. Laser on 5835 and Focus on 5805 were also noted around 1900 UTC but neither were strong enough to listen to at this QTH. They disappeared also just after I lost the other two stations.

Conditions were affected by the activity of the sun, and short skip conditions varied tremendously. Merlin was s9 + 20 and then completely gone, and then the signal returned and so on! However, there were still strong signals on the band, even at 2200 UTC this evening. As I write this I am listening to Sallandseboer on 6291 - 45444, then down to 24222! This, of course, is what makes the band so much fun.
