Africa on Shortwave!

Good propagation from Africa this morning in the 11 MHz spectrum in our post–sunrise window.
Latest solar info is that the Flux moved up to 154 and SSN rose to 109, classified by IPS as "high".
This is a Signal Sample, as received here in Melbourne across the 1900 to 2000 span!
11735 TANZANIA Zanzibar nat net
11750 S. AFRICA AWR-Meyerton *1930 Mebo
11800 RWANDA DW-Kigali English
11810 ASCENSION BBC English
11840 BOTSWANA VOA French
11890 ASCENSION BBC *1930 Hausa
11905 KUWAIT VOA Tigrinya to 1930*
12070 RWANDA DW-Kigali Portuguese
12080 BOTSWANA VOA to 1930* Sudanese (Darfur Program)
Despite the "high" rating for solar activity, this was not represented by any increased action on frequencies above 14 MHz in the 1900-2000 window, In fact, there was only ONE signal audible, NHK's Japanese service on 15130 from the Issoudin (France) relay with a super signal in French!
The MUF/OWF on both short and long paths from Africa/ME/Europe was about 14 MHz, with the NHK service being the exception!
