Hi all, conditions did seem to be up for daytime signals this weekend as
forecast, in fact Sunday seemed the better day, from Brian's DCF39 plot.
Both days show an improvement in signal strengths of about 6dB over last
year's autumn equinox average. It was interesting to see the better
conditions confirmed by Uwe's report of hearing Ron who is a regular signal
on the band in the UK, having been active for about 3 years.
There was a major geomagnetic storm yesterday (24th) with Kp levels of 6
which should lead to continuing good daytime conditions but as we have come
to see, poor nightime levels for long distance signals.
More details on my web site, or via Dave's site.

since my new antenna (two turn loop, W to E, 65m horiz / 12m vertic,
two metre above ground) is working I do hear UK stns I never
today G3KAU/lech gave me rst 229, I gave him 579. dave/g3yxm was 589 today and
569 with the old L-antenna (W to E, 17m to 9m above ground, 350m long).
sri Alan, guess my G6RO-rprt is no indication for better cndx.
