Band conditions today are terrible to say the least.
Lots of noise and signals are up and down.
Listening to a few amateurs on 20 meters last I had noticed a few of them mentions some atmospheric noise that they have not heard in a while indicating maybe the last flare is and has sent some matter down to earth.
We can only hope that the bands will pick up soon and that the noise will somewhat get less if not disappear all together.
We had a good thunder storm roll through last night, and these late fall thunder storms are fairly rare for us as well usually see rain or that other nasty 4 letter word, well it is not that nasty and I don't really mind it.
Have a great rest of the week and a great weekend as well.
