Auroral conditions must have been expectional on Thursday night (April 6th)
as we had VISUAL aurora borealis (arround 22UT) in central Belgium. But I
noticed no propagation enhancement on LF.

A 'severe solar wind shock' impacted Earth at 1632UTC yesterday.
This resulted in a big aurora, The A Index is 56. This is higher than
early February when VA3LK was getting good signals from DCF.
It will be interesting to see if this causes some good LF conditions.
If it does, it probably shows that the Solar Flare warnings are
useless as this aurora was preceded by 2 C-class and 1 M-class
flares which occur quite frequently.
If good conditions are coming they have not arrived yet. However, it
might be a case that it gets bad before it gets better.
