Newfoundland Ultralight Radio Trans-Atlantics & Domestics Report April 29-30

Allen Willie

Hello To All.

Propagation was topsy turvy last evening as a pending solar eruption arrived during the night. With the Solar K Index at 5 and the noise and static level higher, pulling out signals was much tougher than previous evenings during the past month. Those that did make it through at times were strong for a while.

During a rise towards a peaking solar disturbance and the recovery from same, there always seems to be an offering of signals not normally heard during other times, as was the case with last night's logging on 945 khz .
