a SOLAR FLUX OF 72 and a K index of 3 do to high speed solar wind at the time of my listening.

nice report tesla,

I'm not sure of PVC status, as I've been away for a few days. Hope I remembered to turn on again after weekend listening...

Alas GNK, often heard, was not apparent on this occasion (Sat 15th or Sun 16th April), nor AA0RQ.

The 22 mtr Hifer band has sure been hit and miss at this point in the solar cycle...
It was good to hear GNK come up so strong...a GNK Qsl is hard to come by. LOL

PVC restored to operation ~1am this morning. I had indeed forgotten to restart it after listening... Need a sign for this on the desk or door of the "Shack"

June 9 from 1530- 1541 Q5 Copy on K6FRC   no other Hifers heard.
However, the Russian Cluster beacons M and F on 13528.4 have been coming in q5 since 1500 utc...
Only a few dits though out the Hifer band heard and no understanding of what their source is...

Solar Flux 74  A=4  K = 1

July 18  time 1548 utc   k6FRC  was copied about 5 IDs in a row then disappeared...

I admit I haven't listened to the band very often with trout fishing as a main activity and the solar flux soooo  low.

I don't think since I changed my hifer id to PCO  a few months ago I have had a single report...

July 21

at 1512 utc started hearing K6FRC it was very q5 and was moving the s meter a little...best I have heard it in quite awhile...then I
swept through the memories on the icom 756 for the other hifer cw beacons NO JOY...hung out for 15 mins
on PVC NO JOY...

Solar Flux is 70,  there was a ten meter beacon out of Texas coming in...and a qso in progress on 28400 khz
so I went to 12 meters and worked a stn in GA on cw...thats it from Pine...

July 22 and 23, ~6pm PST Caught a few signals on Spectrogram in the 13,555.xxx zone, including NC and possibly EH. On the 23rd also GNK further up the band. No sign of any closer stations.

Setup was with random dipole and Lowe HF225 receiver.

Sept 5  started hearing GNK at 1638 Utc...nice q5 signal along with K6FRC up the band a bit.
Maybe this is a sign of Fall coming...I have logged GNK in a while.
