Monitoring Research - 9 MHz Spectrum

 
Monitoring Research - 9 MHz Spectrum
 
Solar Activity for Cycle 24 continues to be very low – 10 cm Radio Flux is 76, and daily Equivalent Smoothed Sunspot Number down to 14. Cycle 25 not expected to appear until mid-2018! So, multi-hop, long-range propagation across predominantly darkness zones on frequencies above 12 MHz will be unreliable.
 
This 9 MHz summary made across the 1930-2000 time span on June 8 2017 may be of interest, as intercepted here in Melbourne.
