October 2017: Ionospheric Propagation Predictions

Last month (September) saw good openings thanks to the Equinox, which will last until mid-October. Solar activity is expected to be at low levels, no protonic event in sight, and therefore the general conditions in October will be quiet. Solar [...]

September 2017: Ionospheric Propagation Predictions

Solar activity in September will be at very low levels, so propagation will not be excellent, especially on the highest bands. The progressive rise of the dark hours will favor the lower bands. From mid-month onwards there will be the effects [...]

August 2017: Ionospheric Propagation Predictions

The solar activity for August will be quite low, with the Sun coming closer to its minimum. Openings on high bands will be more and more rare and we will have good conditions on low bands only from next fall.

July 2017: Ionospheric Propagation Predictions

July’s solar activity should be very low, with probability of class C flares. Slag propagation on higher bands, in line with the natural decay of solar cycle. Discrete conditions on low ranges with daytime Sporadic-E (Es) “blanketing” [...]

June 2017: Ionospheric Propagation Predictions

At the end of May there were 4 class B flares and on day 27th one of the Coronal Mass Emission (CME) hit the Earth, causing a sudden rise in the geomagnetic field. So the propagation has undergone a rather marked degradation. June’s solar [...]

May 2017: Ionospheric Propagation Predictions

Solar activity in May will be quite low with the possibility of class C flares, so geomagnetic activity is likely to reach G2 (moderate) storm levels. May HF propagation therefore will be poor on high bands with possible good DX openings on [...]

April 2017: Ionospheric Propagation Predictions

Solar activity is expected to be at very low levels and the geomagnetic field activity will be rather quiet, except for a few days due to some class C solar events. General propagation conditions will be fair for the rest of the forecast period.    

March 2017: Ionospheric Propagation Predictions

The solar activity in March should be at very low levels, with the possibility of Flare Class C during the month. Therefore are expected quiet Solar. Propagation in line with the low solar activity with interesting openings due to Equinox.

February 2017: Ionospheric Propagation Predictions

Solar activity is quite low, in line with the sunspots number decrease. The geomagnetic activity should be unstable due to sudden rises of the solar wind, which can cause temporary elevations of ionosphere ionization. In any case, the propagation [...]

January 2017: Ionospheric Propagation Predictions

Solar activity in January will see very low levels, with a small chance for Class Flares C. The geomagnetic field may be unstable, but the general conditions will be quiet for the rest of the forecast period.
