HF Spectrum at 1730-1830

Life of Pi Poster
There is good activity on the 15 MHz, 17 MHz and 21 MHz bands in our sunrise period, dominated by strong long path signals from Europe, Africa and the Middle East, and short path propagation from he Americas.
Even though solar activity is very low (115 10.7 cm radio flux, 66 SSN) I am surprised that the above bands are being used by many broadcasters for darkness transmission paths!
This is what  those bands looked like on December 20 (Dec 21 here!) between 1730 and 1830.
