ARLP029PropagationdeK7RA

SB PROP @ ARL ARLP029 Propagation de K7RA ZCZC AP29 QST de W1AW Propagation Forecast Bulletin 29 ARLP029 From Tad Cook, K7RA Seattle, WA July 18, 2014 To all radio amateurs SB PROP ARL ARLP029 ARLP029 Propagation de K7RA Solar activity is suddenly weakening, and yesterday, Thursday, July 17 the daily sunspot number was zero. We had no other zero sunspot days so far this year, none last year or in 2012, and only two in 2011, on January 27 and August 14. We had 48 days with a sunspot number of zero in 2010 (although Spaceweather.com reports 51 days, and they may be correct), and 260 days with a daily sunspot number of zero in 2009. 2008 had 239 spotless days, and 2007 had 152 days with zero sunspots. Just to revisit the deep trough of solar inactivity we emerged from a few years ago, 2006 had 70 spotless days, 2005 had just 17 days with no spots and 2004 saw only four spotless days. Prior to that we have to look way back to the twentieth century to 1998 to find any spotless days, (three) and 1997 had 57 days with zero sunspots. We have not seen any new sunspot regions emerge since July 10 and 11, when there was a new one each day. On July 8 two new regions appeared. Prior to that we saw a new sunspot region appear each day, from July 1 to 6. The short term outlook for solar flux shows a flux value of 90 on July 18 to 21, 95 on July 22 to 24, then 105, 115, 125, 135 and 140 on July 25 to 29, 145 on July 30 and 31, then it peaks at 155 on August 2, then drops to a minimum of 95 again on August 16 and 17. The same forecast shows planetary A index of 5 on July 18 to 20, 8 on July 21 and 22, 5 on July 23, 8 on July 24, 5 on July 25, 8 on July 26, and 5 again on July 27 through August 9. The average daily sunspot number for the recent seven-day reporting period (July 10 to 16) was only 96.9, down from 205.1 for the previous seven days. The solar flux average was 131.1, down from 193.9 a week ago. OK1HH predicts the geomagnetic field will be quiet on July 18 and 19, mostly quiet July 20, quiet to active July 21, mostly quiet July 22, quiet to active July 23, mostly quiet July 24, quiet on July 25, mostly quiet July 26, quiet to unsettled July 27, quiet July 28 and 29, quiet to unsettled July 30 and 31, quiet on August 1, quiet to active August 2 and 3, mostly quiet August 4 and 5, quiet to unsettled August 6 to 9, quiet to active August 10 and 11, mostly quiet August 12, and quiet again on August 13. Pete Corp, K2ARM of Fort Edward, New York wrote on July 11, "I wrote last on July 1 and since then you must have had a lot of reports of great propagation on 6 and 2 meters. 6 meters has been open every day and some days for 12 hours or more. I was able to work a couple of new countries, on July 5 EA8DBM and EA8TL then on July 6 XE1AY. I have been hearing many Mexican and California stations but could never break the pile ups before and they also seem to be beaming JA but I can still hear them. Conditions are much better and some days it is hard to find a spot to call CQ on 6 meter CW." Jon Jones, N0JK has some interesting comments regarding the question of 6 meter sporadic-e vs. F2 layer propagation in recent bulletins. Jon wrote, "Agree it was multi-hop sporadic E, possibly with some chordal Es hops which would reduce signal loss as opposed to F2. Due to seasonal characteristics of the F-layer, F2 is almost impossible on 6 meters in the northern hemisphere during the summer despite high solar fluxes. EA8DBM did have an amazing signal. I worked Alex on 50.101 MHz July 5 at 1520z from my mobile in EM28. Solid Q-5 CW signal with a whip and 100 watts. Alex made many 6 meter contacts in North America. The trans-Pacific tropo duct was also open July 5/6 from Hawaii to California. KH7Y made the trip up to the 8,000 foot level on Mona Loa and made numerous 144, 222 and 432 MHz contacts along the California coast." Emil Pocock, W3EP of Lebanon, Connecticut wrote on July 13, "Ten meters opened to Europe by 6:00 AM local time (1000 UTC) here in Connecticut for the IARU Contest and stayed opening to the contest's end at 1200 UTC. This was quite unusual, given the season, SFI, and time of day. This unexpected opening was probably not via the usual F2 propagation, but more likely sporadic-E. A few 6-meter contacts were reported from W1, 2, and 3 to CT, I, and 4X about the same time, almost certainly sporadic-E. On 10 meters, I worked from G, F, and EA east to HA, 9A, and S5. I had the impression the opening was quite limited in geographical extent on both ends of the US-Europe path." Randy Crews, W7TJ has some interesting observations about cycle 24 and where we go from here. "http://www.stce.be/newsletter/images/2013/19SolarCycleFC2.png clearly shows how cycle 24 compares relative to other cycles. Note that we are at the 72 Month mark, 6 years into this cycle. Looking at other cycles, it's easy to see cycle 24 is reaching the end point as other cycles have done. Additionally, if a cycle starts weak (as cycle 24 did) it will finish weak - thus far holding true to history. Speaking of starting weak, it took cycle 24 two and one half years from the bottom in late 2008 until the solar flux climbed above 100 (February, 2011) typically the average time for this to happen is 12 months. This was the first time the solar flux reached 100 since 2005! Here is a graph of the weak cycles, 24 of course included: http://www.solen.info/solar/images/comparison_similar_cycles.png This cycle may not be as week as cycle 14, but currently it is running close to cycles 16 and 12. See http://k9la.us/A_Look_at_All_Twenty_Three_Solar_Cycles.pdf This shows a nice bar graph of all cycles up to 24 provided by K9LA. Clusters of high and low cycles trend together in larger macro cycles of 40 to 50 years. Fitting a trend line to the graph, we are definitely on a downward trend with regard to the big picture, but also the near term outlook. Reference the graph on page 4 at: http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/weekly/pdf/prf2027.pdf Notice the wide variation between monthly highs and lows. (Solar Flux Values of 200+ and mid-90s all within a 30 day period.) This is also typical of a cycle reaching the end of its max point - wide monthly fluctuations from min to max where it previously varied maybe 1/3 of the range. (Cycle 22 had a 160 point monthly variation in January of 1991, with solar flux ranging from 200 to 360.) Cycle 24 had a brief peak in November of 2011, then was flat until October 2013 when the average monthly solar flux steadily climbed month after month, reaching average monthly peak of 170 in February of this year, then declining every month consistently thru June of this year. How much of a bounce back we have in July and subsequent months will really depend on not only the number of monthly sunspots, but also their magnetic size and complexity, which this year has been absolutely key to cycle 24's second peak, and it's usurping the November 2011 highs. Conclusion: The peak of this cycle 24 will go down to be February of 2014 as all the aforementioned data confirms. We may find cycle 24 giving a last hurrah this fall, but it would be strictly gratis and on borrowed time. Livingston and Penn have it right. If the size and magnetic strength of sunspots resumes its downward trend, we will indeed have a "Propagation Winter" and cycle 25 will be even lower. Also keep in mind referencing the first graph (of the weak cycles) we will have considerably lower highs from which to fall from this cycle compared to cycles 21, 22, and 23. (cycle 23 took 5 years, 2001 to 2006, before we entered the low portion of the cycle with solar flux values of 70 to 80. With cycle 24, the fall could materialize as quickly as it began in October 2013. It will be real interesting to see how all this plays out."

ARLP028PropagationdeK7RA

SB PROP @ ARL ARLP028 Propagation de K7RA ZCZC AP28 QST de W1AW Propagation Forecast Bulletin 28 ARLP028 From Tad Cook, K7RA Seattle, WA July 11, 2014 To all radio amateurs SB PROP ARL ARLP028 ARLP028 Propagation de K7RA Solar activity strengthened recently, with average daily sunspot numbers for the seven days ending June 25 at 72.3, rising 43.3 points to 115.6 for the seven days ending July 2, then rising 89.5 to an average of 205.1 for the period ending July 9. Similarly, average daily solar flux for the seven days ending on June 25 was 98.8, which rose 30.7 points to 129.5 on July 2, and then rose 64.4 points to 193.9 on July 9. We don't have predictions for daily sunspot numbers, but the predicted average solar flux for the seven days following July 9 is 152.5, a decline of 41.4 points from the previous seven days. Predicted solar flux for the near term is 175, 160, and 150 on July 11-13, then 140, 135 and 130 on July 14-16, then 125, 110 and 105 on July 17-19, 100 on July 20-21, 95 on July 22-23, then 100, 110, 125, 135 and 140 on July 24-28, and 160 on July 29-30. Solar flux then peaks at 205 on August 3-5, and declines to 95 on August 18-19, before rising again in the following days. Predicted planetary A index is 5 on July 11-12, then 10, 8, 12 and 8 on July 13-16, 5 on July 17-25, 8 on July 26, 5 on July 27 through August 4, and 8 on August 5-10, and 12 on August 11. F.K. Janda, OK1HH predicts the geomagnetic field will be quiet to active on July 11, mostly quiet July 12-13, quiet to active July 14, quiet to unsettled July 15, quiet to active July 16-17, quiet July 18-20, quiet to active July 21-22, mostly quiet July 23-24, quiet to unsettled July 25-26, quiet July 27-28, mostly quiet July 29, quiet to unsettled July 30-31, quiet August 1-2, quiet to unsettled August 3, quiet to active August 4, and mostly quiet August 5-6. Phil Russo, N8XA of Dayton, Ohio reported hearing EA8DBM (Canary Islands) for over two hours on 50.157 MHz on July 5 at 40dB over S9. Ray Soifer, W2RS of Green Valley, Arizona also had an EA8DBM report: "Yesterday (July 5) started out frustrating. From here in DM41 I heard W5s and W0s working all sorts of 50 MHz DX that I could not hear. I worked a few East Coast stations on double-hop Es, but that was all. "Finally (1747Z), I worked EA8DBM, a new one for me on 6 and the only DX station I heard all day. I wonder, though, about the propagation mode. I gave him a 55 report, but his signal later built up to S8. That seems awfully strong for 4- or 5-hop Es (the distance is 5456 miles). With the solar flux so high, could it have been F2? "On 6 meters I am running 150 watts to a multi-band vertical (Hy-Gain AV620)." John Geiger, AF5CC of Lawton, Oklahoma also speculated: "I was wondering the same thing about EA8DBM. He was a real S7 on the meter here around 1840Z. Seemed very loud for multihop Es and the flux and SSN was pretty high. Is F2 possible on 6m in July?" No, this was probably linked sporadic-E layer propagation, because solar activity has not been nearly high enough to support F2 on 6 meters. Jim Henderson, KF7E of Queen Creek, Arizona wrote on July 6: "No doubt the great improvement in SFI, low solar winds, etc, will prompt a raft of comments from happy long-weekend DXers. "Simply put, from here in Arizona the combination of high solar flux (best since January 2014?) low solar winds (under 300 Km/S) and generally quiet geomagnetic conditions have put fireworks back into HF and 6m. "Just when bands sounded empty and 'dead,' something most unusual would show up to get the fun meter going. From Arizona, several Lil Pistols worked EA8 and others on 6m. And 28, 24, and 21 MHz have been sterling performers. "On 12m, A65CB, HZ1BW, JY9FC, as well as a host of EUR, Zone 16 and 17, all wafting through the ionosphere. At times propagation was all the way from JY to E51. "15m had S01WS, UN6GDX, 9H1EJ, some 4Z stations, and many semi rare ones from all points of the compass. And 17m after sunset here continues to dazzle the listener. "Let us see, by the time you publish this week, if the SFI stays up all week, as it did in January (200 - 220)." Well, no the solar flux did not stay up, but I appreciate the enthusiasm, and let's hope for more surprises. On July 7, Dan Soderland, KB0EO of Northfield, Minnesota wrote: "There were reports of operators in the black hole of the upper Midwest making QSOs on 6 meters into Africa and Europe on Saturday. I spent a fair amount of time on Sunday waiting for a possible opening and was able to score EA8 and D4 on 6 meter CW from southern Minnesota. It took a number of calls to get through as I am only running 100 watts and a 5 element Yagi at 85 feet. "I called CQ a little later and to my surprise, LZ2HM came back to me with an S5 solid signal. Thinking it might have been a slim, I emailed Andy in Bulgaria, who confirmed the QSO was legit - my first EU QSO on 6 meters! The opening to Europe lasted no more than 30 seconds - no other stations in EU worked or heard. The band was really hopping all day around North America - great conditions to east coast and west coast. Numerous KL7 stations were spotted on the cluster, but I was not able to hear them." For photos of Dan's station, videos including one of his antennas in a windstorm, and a photo of Dan playing banjo while wearing a fake beard, visit http://www.qrz.com/db/kb0eo . Jim White, WD0E of Parker, Colorado wrote, "Just worked KL7 then 10 minutes later CT1 (7/7/14 2000UTC). Both 59 from DM79. Yesterday was the wildest opening I've ever heard on 6. I worked EA8 early then a pileup of both Midwest and NE US stations for two hours in the morning and could have all day but my voice gave out. Heard nearly every possible propagation mode on the same day, sometimes within minutes in one direction or another. Only thing left out was aurora." Scott Bidstrup, TI3/W7RI didn't benefit from the recent 6 meter propagation, but he sent this interesting article about signals and ion trails from fireballs in the sky: http://phys.org/news/2014-07-scientists-radio-emissions-fireballs.html Dave Greer, N4KZ of Frankfort, Kentucky wrote on July 9, "Solar Cycle 24 -- the little cycle that wouldn't quit. What else is there to say? "Propagation on 12 meters has been interesting, even entertaining in recent days. At 1459 UTC on July 5, I called CQ on 12 meter SSB and JK4CHT replied. Signals were about 5x6 both ways. Hide said his local time in Japan was midnight -- mid-morning at my Kentucky QTH -- and he was amazed to hear 12 meters open and an American station coming through at that. "A day later, I again called CQ on 12 meter SSB at 0235 UTC and WB0TVY in nearby Missouri answered. Kent noted how short the skip was. Ten minutes into our QSO, Jeff, N8II in West Virginia joined us. All signals were strong and now we had three stations in Missouri, Kentucky and West Virginia all talking with one another like it was 75 meters. But it wasn't. It was 12 meters where E-skip signals that close in aren't normally heard. It was the first time each of the three of us had worked those states on 12. "And 6 meters has finally gotten lively again. The 2013 E-skip season was a major disappointment here in grid EM78. Domestic E-skip was sparse last year and I only heard Europe once and then only briefly. Previous years had provided many domestic and DX multihop E-skip contacts on 6 across the U.S., Europe, the Caribbean and the Canary Islands. "But 2014 is proving to be a return to the good times of previous years. Already, I have worked into Europe a couple of times. One CW QSO was with SM7FJE in Sweden at 2054 UTC on July 3. That was a new one for me -- my 72nd entity on 6 meters. A second Swedish station was heard a few minutes later but not worked. Scandinavia is very rare from here on 6. "July 6 yield three QSOs into the Canary Islands -- a location I've been fortunate enough to have worked numerous times before on 6 meters. Starting at 1421 UTC I worked EA8DBM on phone and CW and EA8BPX on SSB. "My HF station runs 500 watts to an 8-element log periodic at 60 feet. On 6 meters, it's a more modest 100 watts to a 5-element Yagi at 65 feet. But my Frankfort, KY QTH is fortunate to be on a nice hilltop with steeply sloping terrain down 150 feet in nearly all directions but due south. I've had a dozen QTHs in my 45 years on the air and this one is by far the best." Rick Radke, W9WS of Balsam Lake, Wisconsin sent in a Field Day report. "I did a single op set-up from my 20 foot pontoon boat from the middle of Balsam Lake in N.W. Wisconsin. Running class 1C, W9WS/MM WI. I tried at the starting gun on Saturday but a stiff wind and whitecaps drove me off the lake. It also eliminated erecting a 20 meter inverted V, fed with ladder line at 20 feet. A contest operation while tending a boat is almost impossible. Sunday was almost ham heaven. On the water by 8:30 with full Sun, light winds, and excellent propagation. Running a 17 foot whip and tuner against a 8x20 piece of aluminum floating on water was spectacular. 20 was wide-open, but wall to wall stations made contacts difficult. 40 was much better, and made many contacts out 500-700 miles. At 10:00 I switched to 15 and worked anything I could hear, both coasts, and the gulf. Nothing heard on 10 and 6. Had a blast, but still want to try the inverted V." David Moore is always on the lookout for interesting articles about our Sun, and sent in this from Australia and New Zealand Science Alert about a new assessment of the solar atmosphere: http://sciencealert.com.au/news/20143006-25777-2.html Here is a nice comparison of smoothed sunspot cycles: http://www.stce.be/newsletter/images/2013/19SolarCycleFC2.png Scott Avery, WA6LIE of Salinas, California wrote on July 6, "AFTER Field Day, 6 meters picked up a lot. "Have been using JT65 and JT9 to shoot fish in a barrel! "Been working a lot of east coast stuff not heard on CW or SSB. "As we all know 6 meters is the 'magic band' and one needs to just listen or look at DX spots. "We need MORE JT65 and JT9 stations out there for DX and propagation experiments! "Download WSJT-X and give it a whirl. "http://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/K1JT/wsjtx.html "Hope to see more JT65 activity!" Today, Friday July 11 (UTC), Scott added these updates: "6 meter opening to east coast now! Started around 2300z and still going on! 6 is HOT!!" (This was sent at 0100z) "6 meters wide open to Japan now! Band is nuts! 0500z Japan EVERYWHERE SSB and CW!"
