To all members and readers!
Here in Melbourne, our sunrise and sunset times have started to changed due to later sunrises and earlier sunsets. This altered pattern has resulted in variations in signal fade-in and fade-out timings, particularly on the 6, 7 and 9 MHz bands.
Propagation patterns have also changed, due to the continuing low level of Solar Activity, with the daily Equivalent Sunspot Number falling to as low as zero on some days!
This is a summary of notable frequency occupancies researched on January 9 2017, across the time span 1930 to 2000.
