This indicates to me that there are few "spare" electrons in the
Equatorial Ring Current to be precipitated or exchanged with the
These hot electrons are the ones that cause night-time absorption at LF (
and aurora), so night-times paths should be good at the moment.
I also noted much improved LF condx here last night as well. The nightly
check of my E-W ndb prop indicators has been discouraging for the past 3
weeks but last night they were all there, with good signal strengths. Things
definitely took a turn for the better yesterday!
