July 2016

Propagation Summary
On June 17, the RSGB reported good reception on 6 Metres, but the rest of the HF band has been disturbed by Coronal Hole activity, particularly on 14-15 June.  Sporadic E conditions, however, have produced some good VHF propagation, mainly on the last week in June

Propagation Forecast up to 16 July
Solar activity is expected to be at very low to low levels for the forecast period.
The Solar flux is expected to be at normal to moderate levels with high levels likely on 04-07 July and again on 16 July due to Coronal Hole High Speed Stream (CH HSS) activity.
Geomagnetic field activity is expected to be at unsettled to active levels from 02-03 July, 07-12 July and 14-15 July.  G1-Minor storm levels are likely on 02-03 July and 11 July due to recurrent CH HSS activity.   See also, Glenn Hauser’s DX Listening digest at: or
