Class G2 geomagnetic storm…

The mediumwave band is in pretty bad shape after the class G2 geomagnetic storm that has occured during the last 24 hours. A- and K-indexes are slowly moving down. K-index is currently on a nice 2, but the A-index is still on a high 16. This means that it’s an excellent evening for sorting out the recordings from last weekend and writing some reception reports. When the reception reports are written and sent, I will upload a bunch of audio files for your amusement. Have patience!

Update: and during the late evening, the A-index raised to an even more horrible 28! Ouch…

I’m still waiting for a reply from UNTV in Quezon City regarding the reception of their programme on 1350 KHz. Thanks to helpful information from co-DX:ers in the NorDX Yahoo group, I’m now quite sure that what I heard was an overnight relay of the UNTV programme via DZXQ-1350 Pasig City, Metro Manila.

About Hans

Male. 50 years young. DX:er since 1980. In September 2011 I moved up to Vardø on Vardøya Island (EU-141) to start working as manager for the Coast Radio station in Vardø. I feel very lucky to have this opportunity to work with the thing that I think is the most interesting in the whole world - Radio! My main interest is, yeah - you guessed right: Radio. I'm a ham radio operator, holding the callsign LA2MOA. My main radio interests is low power operation and low band DXing on the amateur bands, but also mediumwave and tropical band DX-listening. I'm also interested in angling, fly-fishing and fly-tying. The area around Vardø offers some great opportunities to do all of this. And, since I'm of swedish origin, I'm also madly interested in ice-hockey and since 35 years I'm a hardcore supporter of Rögle BK in Ängelholm - one of the few really true hockey clubs left in Sweden.
