Band opening please, solar gods!!!
The energy from that flare is hitting us now--no good for propagation today
I make it a point on days like this to throw up a dipole in the back yard and see how many Winlink gateways I can hit. Propagation is definitely impacted, but I can still push email through old reliable AJ4GU on 40 meters, some 304 miles distant, with my FT 817 set to 5 watts and an inverted v at about 20ish feet to the feed point.
Some minor aurora on 2 meters, tropo tonight produced better distances...
