What to do when condx are gone…
Was listening for about an hour between 15:00 and 16:00 UTC today, and KBRW-680 was superb from time to time. It definetely looked promising, but within 30 minutes or so, the band went very noisy. A brief look at the realtime propagation monitor showed that the band is moving towards unsettled to active conditions. The proton density is also moving up, so it’s not strange that the band is noisy. This far north the band always get’s noisy during high proton activity and transpolar DX is more or less impossible. So what to do then? Well, I have plenty of audioclips from November that’s not analyzed yet, so I guess that I will have a lot of time consuming work to do this weekend if conditions doesn’t improve.
If conditions looks promising next weekend, I’m planning to try a new indoor QTH in a more remote location. I’ll keep you posted!
