Sunspot count increases - good pre-dawn propagation on 15 MHz into Melbourne

The daily Smoothed Sunspot Number rose to 70 yesterday and this was
associated with increased Optimum Working Frequencies for longpath
propagation into Melbourne from Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, and
shortpath transmissions from the Americas, in our pre-dawn window from as
early as 1800.
