I see there was an X17 solar flare yesterday, with accompanying
earthwards CME - no wonder I couldn't see VO1NA last night! I thought we
were getting into the quiet part of the sunspot cycle!

Yesterday at 2030 UTC I had a QSO on 80 metres with PA0HRT (over 190km) and PA0HRP (over 54km), the latter on his motorboat.
After some 15 minutes the signals suddenly almost disappeared; we had just time to agree to QSY to 160 m.
There I could continue the QSO with PA0HRP via groundwave. PA0HRT was to far away to hear us.
Our morning paper has a beautiful picture of the sun eruption and it says that satellite communications and high voltage lines are in danger of interruptions.
