Weekend Geomagnetic Storm

GEOMAGNETIC STORM: A solar wind stream hit Earth during the late hours of Feb. 4th, sparking a G2-class (Kp=6) geomagnetic storm. Sky watchers in Scandinavia, Russia, Canada, Alaska and perhaps even northern-tier US states such as Maine, Minnesota and Wisconsin, should be alert for auroras on Friday night. The best time to look is during the hours around local midnight.

At 09.25 UTC I worked 4Z5NX/QRP Shimon from Tel Aviv, Israel on 14060 KHz with both 5 watts. A good start for the Saturday.


  1. Hi Paul,
    No more storms of any type, had enough!
    Have A Nice Weekend!

  2. Good morning Paul, When I checked the propagation this morning I was shocked to see the A index at 15, the solar wind at almost 600. Having said that this is all part of the sun waking up and becoming active.

  3. Hi Jim, we also have a storm at the moment along the North Sea Coast. Winds guts up to 90 km/sec. I can't understand you have enough snow storms, I saw it in our 8 o'clock news. 73 Paul

  4. Hello Mike, condx on 20 meter today were not bad at all. It's always surprising. 73 Paul


Thank you for dropping by and leaving a comment. 73 Paul
