February 2018: Ionospheric Propagation Predictions

The sunspots number is almost close to zero, so the propagation will be rather poor on the high bands, with short apertures during daytime. Conditions will be better on the lower bands with darkness.

January 2018: Ionospheric Propagation Predictions

Solar activity remained at very low levels throughout December 2017. No CME events direct to Earth were observed. Under the point of view of propagation, January 2018 will be a generally quiet period with the ever-decreasing Solar Cycle. The [...]

December 2017: Ionospheric Propagation Predictions

Solar activity is expected to be at very low levels during December, so HF propagation conditions will be poor on upper bands, while on lower bands we’ll see good DX condtions. December is the month of winter solstice, so more darkness [...]

November 2017: Ionospheric Propagation Predictions

Solar activity in October was at very low levels and no CME directed towards the Earth was observed. There are therefore no special events scheduled for November. HF propagation will generally be better on lower bands due to the increase in [...]

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 [...]

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.
