The logs between 18th and 26th of September 2013

October 03, 2013 By: admin Category: BC-stations, DX-listening

Propagation has been very good lately. I was away from home one week and I had a remote-QTH recording from the 24th till 1st of October. Unfortunately software had failed after the 26th so I missed the excellent US conditions on the 28th and 29th. After that CME hit the Earth and there was visible aurora in the Southern Finland yesterday evening but it seems that the band is recovering very quickly. All day today Tromso K-index has been 0.

Again I have bolded interesting (for me) stations.
