First time a spot from Alaska KL7L

It was virtually impossible for me to work a station out of Alaska, not even with WSPR. But yesterday I was received by KL7L at 17:38 UTC -22 dB WSPR 0.2 watts.

Overview WSPR results week 37

Last week the conditions at 20 meters were quite nice. The best days were September 14 and 15. After September 15, spots could still be found at night. Transmit power was 200 mW into a groundplane antenna. Many spots from Australia, but also the USA, LU and PY. But hey, the SFI is pretty high. We can still suffer from a large sunspot that caused a big eruption on the other side of the sun 2 weeks ago. At the end of September early October the sunspot faces earth. That could potentially lead to geomagnetic storms.

Big Sunspot

We will see what the effect will be on the propagations. As long as it doesn't explode, because then it could affect satellites or power plants. I leave my WSPRLite on 24/7 at 20 meters to see the effect. Now conditions at 20 meters are best in the morning around 7 hrs UTC and late in the evening. During the day the conditions decrease at 20 meters.
