Hi all, if you didn't see anything last night dont give up just yet. We had
10/10ths cloud here so nothing seen other than scatter from the lights on
the docks. There is another CME shock that was due early this morning or
some time today, which could boost the effect again tonight. The Kp was 8
just before midnight, and the strom lasted about 15 hours.

Look for enhanced daytime DX on 136 about Thursday or Friday, and probably
into the weekend, this one may last quite a while.

After 4 flares on Friday, there were another two on Sunday that were smaller
.... an M1.5 just before dawn that would have little effect in Europe and an
M3.0 at about 1100z which should have given enhancement for 15 to 20

Cheers de Alan G3NYK
