Evening propagation into Mont Albert has been quite good, of late, on those
bands which have been open.
Continuing low solar activity has mitigated against long-haul propagation in
this time period on frequencies above about 15 MHz!

IPS says: High solar flare activity. An X1.2 magnitude solar flare occurred
at 0148 on May 15, producing a short-wave fadeout centred on the Western
Pacific, and including the Australian continent. Minor coronal mass ejection
effects possible later in the day. Solar wind light. Geomagnetic conditions
quiet initially, becoming unsettled to active. Further short-wave radio
fadeouts likely. High-frequency radio communications otherwise normal.
