Wham! Bam! Thank You Sun | Space Weather News 05.02.2019
NOT AGAIN !!!
For those that are sick of having to watch videos:
1. Fast wind from coronal hole entering the earth's zone, and we're seeing its effects already, bumping us up into active conditions and possibly causing aurora. Up to about 40% chance of a major storm up North. Mid-lattitudes only a 10% chance.
2. Two solar storms launched on the sun's backside, and they may end up being solar storm producers as they turn around to our side in the next few days. Spotless sun facing us now. That will change in a few days, and the solar flux will raise into low to mid 70s by next week, and possibly over the next 2 weeks. Might be noisy though, because of small flares and solar storms. GPS users should be OK. Cosmic ray flux more intense for fliers, and you are in the marginal range for radiation.
3. Passing to the new-moon phase, meteor showers peaking between May 4 and 6th, so we could see up to 20 meteors in an hour.
Nice. Thank You.
That was a lot better for my Dialup connection.
I saw her on Ham Nation this week, they had a great 400th show.
I live in Korea, so I've got about 80MBPS download and 104 upload for FREE every month, from my phone company -- but I do have limits in my LTE, so I can sympathize with people who aren't so fortunate. Too many videos these days, and less information is typed, when it just as easily could be.
Drives me batty when I have to watch a 5 minute video to get 30 seconds of information. Not picking on this lady, who does an excellent job -- just a general problem across the internet.
I produce a daily HF-MF radio wave propagation forecast. You can see it at https://groups.io/g/w4hmradiowavepropagationforecast/messages .
Tamitha's NOT boring!
ya.....know it would really be a whole lot helpful if these propagation forecasts were in plain, simple English. Not like a car salesman trying to confuse you in thinking you need something when you don't. Just plain and simple information. sorta like for an example : " 20 meters will be great, world wide conditions, best time to work Europe,Africa,Asia is.... and in the northeast, you should find 20 meters great.....times, " not a bunch of numbers and a video that lasts 20 minutes or a site that has a forecast that only someone with a PHD would understand. Some of us hams STILL have to work and have jobs and really don't have the time to sit in from of our computers for 3 hours, we have jobs.....just something plain and simple....." your screwed Joe ham, bands suck today, head for the golf course ".
Thank you for all the great news and keeping us posted. Anticipating a long summer.
