We are now firmly in summer/winter solstice type of HF radio wave propagation conditions.

This means generally poor HF radio wave propagation conditions in the northern hemisphere especially at day and generally good HF radio wave propagation conditions in the southern hemisphere especially at day.

Globally HF radio wave propagation conditions are most evenly balanced
during the fall and spring equinoxes and most diametrically opposed during
the summer and winter solstice.

Conditions change daily, weekly, monthly, yearly and by decade, as the
sun rises and sets at different times and at different angles from the
ecliptic, as well as by radio wave frequency. This is due to changes in the
maximum usable frequency (MUF), lowest usable frequency (LUF) and F layer
critical frequency (FoF2).



This HF Radio wave propagation forecast is based on the NSA_Cap HF radio wave propagation prediction software.

The hamateur radio JT65A mode RF signal levels received are based on 5 watts and ½ wave dipole up at 40 feet.

The hamateur radio PSK31 mode RF signal levels received are based on 25 watts and ½ wave dipole up at 40 feet.

The hamateur radio CW mode RF signal levels received are based on 50 watts and ½ wave dipole up at 40 feet.

The hamateur radio SSB RF mode signal levels received are based on 100 watts and ½ wave dipole up at 40 feet.

The HF shortwave broadcast band AM Mode RF signal levels are based on 100,000 watts (100 kw) and a typical VOA type curtain array antenna.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please keep in mind that this is a relatively simplified HF radio wave
propagation forecast, so as to keep it easily understandable and applicable by the average radio enthusiast.

propagation that can really throw a wrench into the gears so to speak.

Things like sporadic E (Es) radio wave propagation and lightning storm
static can impact HF radio wave propagation in an unpredictable manner and
mostly bad.

Ongoing solar, space and geomagnetic weather goings on also impact HF radio
wave propagation conditions in a negative manner.

Solar, Space & Geomagnetic Weather Conditions On

Tuesday June 26, 2017-

Solar activity was very low.

Earth's geomagnetic field was at a quiet level.

The three daily solar flux index (SFI) numbers were 73.8 74.1 73.7

The official daily sunspot number (SSN) was 19.

In 2017 officially there were 42 days with a daily sunspot number (SSN) of
0.

Considering that solar minimum won't occur for approximately 2 more years,
+/- 1 year, daily SSN's of 0 are occurring now unusually early.

In 2016 officially there were 32 days with a daily sunspot number (SSN) of
0. Considering that solar minimum won't occur for approximately three more
years, seeing daily SSN's of 0 occurring now is unusually early.

As we move forward towards the next solar minimum between solar cycle #24
and #25 the number of days with a 0 daily SSN will steadily increase.
Eventually every day for many, many, many months will see a 0, the big goose
egg.

In 2008 I forecasted solar cycle 24 to be the weakest in the past 100 years
and that forecast verified. I also forecasted that solar cycle 25 would be
virtually nonexistent, similar to the Dalton type solar minimum that
occurred in the early 1800's. Other than sunspot magnetic polarity it will probably be very difficult to determine when solar cycle 24 ended and solar cycle 25 began.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There was a newly risen and/or emerged and/or existing official sun spot group (SSG).

SSG #12664 located near N18W18 with a slightly complex beta magnetic signature capable of releasing small C class solar flares.

There was 1 unofficial and as of yet unnumbered earth facing sunspot group (SSG) located near S06W27.

No earth facing C class or larger solar flare occurred.

No energetic proton related day side high latitude solar fade out (SFO) (also related polar cap absorption) occurred.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There was no earth facing coronal mass ejection (CME).

There was no earth facing collapsing magnetic filament eruption.

The 24 hour period 3 hour interval planetary K index (Kp) was at quiet geomagnetic conditions of

2 1 1 1 1 1 1 1.

The Kp geomagnetic indices are-
0-2- quiet
3- unsettled
4- active
5- minor geomagnetic storming
6- moderate
7- strong
8- severe
9- extreme
10- our atmosphere just got cooked off like on Mars and we are all dead.

The 24 hour period maximum and minimum planetary A index (Ap) ranged between

6 and 3,

which was at quiet geomagnetic conditions.

The Ap geomagnetic indices are-
0-7- quiet
8-15 unsettled
16-29- active
30-49- minor geomagnetic storm
50-99- major
100-400- severe
>401- our atmosphere just got cooked off like on Mars and we are all dead.
The 24 hour period averaged energetic proton flux was at a background level below 10 MeV.

The 24 hour period averaged background x-ray flux was at B2.55.

The 24 hour period averaged vertical component (Bz) of earth's geomagnetic magnetic field was at

+0.69 nT north.

The 24 hour period maximum and minimum disturbance storm time index (Dst) ranged between

 -3 and +15 nT.

The 24 hour period maximum and minimum solar wind speed ranged between

540 and 400 km/s.

There was no earth facing coronal hole.

GENERAL GUIDELINES CONCERNING CORRELATION OF PROPAGATION INDICES TO ACTUAL HF PROPAGATION CONDITIONS-

NOTE!!! The propagation indices "interpretations" are my personal
intellectual property. Therefore the radio wave propagation indices
interpretations contained herein is copyrighted © 1988-2017 by Thomas F.
Giella, W4HM, all rights reserved. Reproduction of information herein is
allowed without permission in advance as long as proper credit is given.

All 14 of the following indices have to occur as described below in order to
see the best global high frequency radio wave propagation possible,
something that happens rarely.

1.) Dropping geomagnetic field indices numbers are better, Kp of 0 best.

2.) A daily sunspot number of 150 or higher, 200 or higher best.

3.) A daily sunspot number of greater than 100 for routine stable formation
of the E Valley/F Layer ducting mechanism.

4.) Previous 24 hour Ap index under 10, fewer than 7 for several days
consecutively are best.

5.) Previous 3 hours Kp index fewer than 3 for mid latitude paths, fewer
than 2 for high latitude paths, 0 for several days consecutively is best.

6.) Energetic protons no greater than 10 MeV (10+0).

7.) Background x-ray flux levels greater than B1 for several days
consecutively, greater than C1 best.

8.) No current STRATWARM alert.

9.) Interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) Bz with a (positive number) sign,
indicates a lesser chance of high latitude path aurora
absorption/unpredictable refraction or scattering of medium frequency RF
signals, when the Kp is above 3.

10.) A -10 or better towards a positive number Dst index during the recovery
time after a geomagnetic storm, as related to the equatorial ring current. A
positive number is best.

11.) Rising positive T index number. The T Index tracks with the F2 layer
critical frequency (foF2) and sunspot number (SSN) and indicates the
capability of the F2 layer to refract RF signals.

12.) Galactic cosmic rays decrease to -3 units below zero and trending
towards zero.

13.) Energetic electron flux levels no greater than 2 MeV (2+0).

14. A solar wind speed of less than 300 km/s for several days consecutively.

Info Borderhunter Summer Meeting 2017

Borderhunter Summer Meeting 2017 information.

Hi Free Radio and pirate fans! It's already time for another one! From the 30th June to the 2th of July 2017, everyone of distinction in the scene meets once again – both listeners and stations! On this particular weekend, it’s provisionally planned that the next Borderhunter summer meeting (well-known and well-loved across Europe) will take place in the first week-end of July. Only those who already know about this fantastic meeting, know what the home stayers miss.

As in every year, the question of where to stay overnight is no problem! You can stay in a car, tent, caravan, hotel, B&B or at the accommodation at the camp site (complete with beds, but bring a sleeping bag) – everything can be brought along, as everything is best provided for. The meeting begins officially on Saturday, as usual. In addition, every year many hobbyists travel on Friday, which the boss of the organisation also has no problem with. Everyone is always most cordially welcome at any time!

You can safely leave your picnic basket at home with your mother – the selection of meals and drinks is so vast, that you will be a little bit heavier when you return home on Sunday! And all this and more at affordable prices. However in order not to drive the meeting organisation into financial ruin, there is a small contribution of 2 Euros per person which is obligatory.

Radio Borderhunter will organise a meeting for friends of the free radio and pirate hobby, that is not only unique, but will also remain unsurpassed – that we promise all hobbyists! In order that we can better plan, we request that you let us know when you are coming, in advance if possible. As we want to make sure that we have enough food beforehand, for example.

Reservations, applications and questions should be directed to the following e-mail address: summermeetingtime@hotmail.com or to
PO BOX 2702, 6049 ZG HERTEN, THE NETHERLANDS.


The exact route to the meeting will be given in advance. Most of you will know it from previous years. Our motto for this meeting, as always is: come, see, be amazed, be at home.
All free radio friends are cordially welcome at the BORDERHUNTER SUMMER MEETING on the 30th June until the 2th of July 2017!!!

6.) Energetic protons no greater than 10 MeV (10+0).

7.) Background x-ray flux levels greater than B1 for several days
consecutively, greater than C1 best.

8.) No current STRATWARM alert.

9.) Interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) Bz with a (positive number) sign,
indicates a lesser chance of high latitude path aurora
absorption/unpredictable refraction or scattering of medium frequency RF
signals, when the Kp is above 3.

10.) A -10 or better towards a positive number Dst index during the recovery
time after a geomagnetic storm, as related to the equatorial ring current. A
positive number is best.

11.) Rising positive T index number. The T Index tracks with the F2 layer
critical frequency (foF2) and sunspot number (SSN) and indicates the
capability of the F2 layer to refract RF signals.

12.) Galactic cosmic rays decrease to -3 units below zero and trending
towards zero.

13.) Energetic electron flux levels no greater than 2 MeV (2+0).

14. A solar wind speed of less than 300 km/s for several days consecutively.

Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity 19 - 25 June 2017

Solar activity was very low throughout the period with only isolated
low and mid-level B-class flare activity observed. Regions 2663
(N12, L=095, class/area=Dso/100 on 17 Jun) and 2664 (N18, L=314,
class/area=Cso/90 on 25 Jun) each produced B-class flare activity
throughout the week while Region 2662 (N12, L=050,
class/area=Hsx/170 on 13 Jun) was quiet. No Earth-directed CMEs were
observed this period.

No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached
high levels on 19-21 Jun with moderate levels observed on 22-25 Jun.

Geomagnetic field activity was generally quiet and quiet to
unsettled throughout the week with isolated active conditions
observed on 25 Jun due to the influence of a positive, north
polar-connected CH HSS.

FORECAST OF SOLAR AND GEOMAGNETIC ACTIVITY 26 JUNE - 22 JULY 2017

Solar activity is expected to be very low, with a slight chance for
C-class flare activity, throughout the outlook period.

No proton events are expected at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is
expected to reach high levels on 30 Jun-03 Jul, and 16-18 Jul.
Normal and normal to moderate flux levels are expected to prevail
throughout the remainder of the outlook period.

Geomagnetic field activity is expected to be at quiet and quiet to
unsettled levels through most of the outlook period; however, G1
(Minor) geomagnetic storm conditions are likely on 13 Jul with
active conditions likely on 14 Jul due to the anticipated influence
of a recurrent, negative polarity CH HSS.

Glenn Hauser logs June 25-26-27, 2017

** ALBANIA [non]. 5850, June 26 at 2300 on caradio, R. Tirana via WRMI, music show first with ME sounds, mentions Ramadan, then quite a variety of presumed Albanian music. 2328 closing and a sesquiminute of IS before WRMI canned ID (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BENIN. 1566, June 26 at 0507, JBA carrier on the R75; at 0512 not on the NRD-545 or DX-398, but by 0515 detectable on the NRD, presumed TWR Parakou. Nick Hall-Patch in BC and Don Moman in Alberta were hearing this again last night with some audio, also suggesting 1296 Sudan, which is 600 kW further east so fading out earlier; not here. June 27 at quick 0311 check, no 1566 audible --- oops, that`s too early, before nominal *0315 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EQUATORIAL GUINEA [and non]. 5005.0, June 26 at 0518, JBA carrier, presumed RNGE Bata, around variable optimum morning sign-on time to hear it.

We are now firmly in summer/winter solstice type of HF radio wave propagation conditions.

This means generally poor HF radio wave propagation conditions in the northern hemisphere especially at day and generally good HF radio wave propagation conditions in the southern hemisphere especially at day.

Globally HF radio wave propagation conditions are most evenly balanced
during the fall and spring equinoxes and most diametrically opposed during
the summer and winter solstice.

Conditions change daily, weekly, monthly, yearly and by decade, as the
sun rises and sets at different times and at different angles from the
ecliptic, as well as by radio wave frequency. This is due to changes in the
maximum usable frequency (MUF), lowest usable frequency (LUF) and F layer
critical frequency (FoF2).



This HF Radio wave propagation forecast is based on the NSA_Cap HF radio wave propagation prediction software.

The hamateur radio JT65A mode RF signal levels received are based on 5 watts and ½ wave dipole up at 40 feet.

The hamateur radio PSK31 mode RF signal levels received are based on 25 watts and ½ wave dipole up at 40 feet.

The hamateur radio CW mode RF signal levels received are based on 50 watts and ½ wave dipole up at 40 feet.

The hamateur radio SSB RF mode signal levels received are based on 100 watts and ½ wave dipole up at 40 feet.

The HF shortwave broadcast band AM Mode RF signal levels are based on 100,000 watts (100 kw) and a typical VOA type curtain array antenna.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please keep in mind that this is a relatively simplified HF radio wave
propagation forecast, so as to keep it easily understandable and applicable by the average radio enthusiast.

Globally HF radio wave propagation conditions are most evenly balanced
during the fall and spring equinoxes and most diametrically opposed during
the summer and winter solstices.

Conditions change daily, weekly, monthly, yearly and by decade, as the
sun rises and sets at different times and at different angles from the
ecliptic, as well as by radio wave frequency. This is due to changes in the
maximum usable frequency (MUF), lowest usable frequency (LUF) and F layer
critical frequency (FoF2).

The D and E layers also come into play through RF radio wave signal
absorption and refraction. And then there is sporadic E (Es) radio wave
propagation that can really throw a wrench into the gears so to speak.

Things like sporadic E (Es) radio wave propagation and lightning storm
static can impact HF radio wave propagation in an unpredictable manner and
mostly bad.

Ongoing solar, space and geomagnetic weather goings on also impact HF radio
wave propagation conditions in a negative manner.

Solar, Space & Geomagnetic Weather Conditions On

Sunday June 25, 2017-

Solar activity was very low.

Earth's geomagnetic field was at an unsettled level.

The three daily solar flux index (SFI) numbers were 72.3 73.7 73.8.

The official daily sunspot number (SSN) was 20.

In 2017 officially there were 42 days with a daily sunspot number (SSN) of
0.

Considering that solar minimum won't occur for approximately 2 more years,
+/- 1 year, daily SSN's of 0 are occurring now unusually early.

In 2016 officially there were 32 days with a daily sunspot number (SSN) of
0. Considering that solar minimum won't occur for approximately three more
years, seeing daily SSN's of 0 occurring now is unusually early.

As we move forward towards the next solar minimum between solar cycle #24
and #25 the number of days with a 0 daily SSN will steadily increase.
Eventually every day for many, many, many months will see a 0, the big goose
egg.

In 2008 I forecasted solar cycle 24 to be the weakest in the past 100 years
and that forecast verified. I also forecasted that solar cycle 25 would be
virtually nonexistent, similar to the Dalton type solar minimum that
occurred in the early 1800's. Other than sunspot magnetic polarity it will probably be very difficult to determine when solar cycle 24 ended and solar cycle 25 began.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There was a newly risen and/or emerged and/or existing official sun spot group (SSG).


SSG #12664 located near N18E08 with a slightly complex beta magnetic signature capable of releasing small C class solar flares.

There was no unofficial and as of yet unnumbered earth facing sunspot group (SSG).

No earth facing C class or larger solar flare occurred.

No energetic proton related day side high latitude solar fade out (SFO) (also related polar cap absorption) occurred.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There was no earth facing coronal mass ejection (CME).

There was no earth facing collapsing magnetic filament eruption.

The 24 hour period 3 hour interval planetary K index (Kp) was at unsettled to quiet geomagnetic conditions of

2 2 3 2 2 2 1 2.

The Kp geomagnetic indices are-
0-2- quiet
3- unsettled
4- active
5- minor geomagnetic storming
6- moderate
7- strong
8- severe
9- extreme
10- our atmosphere just got cooked off like on Mars and we are all dead.

The 24 hour period maximum and minimum planetary A index (Ap) ranged between

18 and 5,

which was at active to quiet geomagnetic conditions.

The Ap geomagnetic indices are-
0-7- quiet
8-15 unsettled
16-29- active
30-49- minor geomagnetic storm
50-99- major
100-400- severe
>401- our atmosphere just got cooked off like on Mars and we are all dead.
The 24 hour period averaged energetic proton flux was at a background level below 10 MeV.

The 24 hour period averaged background x-ray flux was at B1.21.

The 24 hour period averaged vertical component (Bz) of earth's geomagnetic magnetic field was at

-0.33 nT south.

The 24 hour period maximum and minimum disturbance storm time index (Dst) ranged between

 -18 and +15 nT.

The 24 hour period maximum and minimum solar wind speed ranged between

480 and 377 km/s.

There was a recurrent earth facing northern hemisphere coronal hole (CH), #809 (#805). It was connected to earth’s geomagnetic field via a (HSS) high speed solar wind stream and was impacting the earth’s ionosphere in a negative manner.

There was a recurrent directly (geoeffective) earth facing transequatorial hemisphere coronal hole (CH), #810 (#806).

GENERAL GUIDELINES CONCERNING CORRELATION OF PROPAGATION INDICES TO ACTUAL HF PROPAGATION CONDITIONS-

NOTE!!! The propagation indices "interpretations" are my personal
intellectual property. Therefore the radio wave propagation indices
interpretations contained herein is copyrighted © 1988-2017 by Thomas F.
Giella, W4HM, all rights reserved. Reproduction of information herein is
allowed without permission in advance as long as proper credit is given.

All 14 of the following indices have to occur as described below in order to
see the best global high frequency radio wave propagation possible,
something that happens rarely.

1.) Dropping geomagnetic field indices numbers are better, Kp of 0 best.

2.) A daily sunspot number of 150 or higher, 200 or higher best.

3.) A daily sunspot number of greater than 100 for routine stable formation
of the E Valley/F Layer ducting mechanism.

4.) Previous 24 hour Ap index under 10, fewer than 7 for several days
consecutively are best.

5.) Previous 3 hours Kp index fewer than 3 for mid latitude paths, fewer
than 2 for high latitude paths, 0 for several days consecutively is best.

6.) Energetic protons no greater than 10 MeV (10+0).

7.) Background x-ray flux levels greater than B1 for several days
consecutively, greater than C1 best.

8.) No current STRATWARM alert.

9.) Interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) Bz with a (positive number) sign,
indicates a lesser chance of high latitude path aurora
absorption/unpredictable refraction or scattering of medium frequency RF
signals, when the Kp is above 3.

10.) A -10 or better towards a positive number Dst index during the recovery
time after a geomagnetic storm, as related to the equatorial ring current. A
positive number is best.

11.) Rising positive T index number. The T Index tracks with the F2 layer
critical frequency (foF2) and sunspot number (SSN) and indicates the
capability of the F2 layer to refract RF signals.

12.) Galactic cosmic rays decrease to -3 units below zero and trending
towards zero.

13.) Energetic electron flux levels no greater than 2 MeV (2+0).

14. A solar wind speed of less than 300 km/s for several days consecutively.
