Aloha All,
I see the Hakalau repeater is restored to the network.  Mahalo for the hard work.  The 3 repeaters are linked up.
Hilo 442.200 (+) PL 110.9
Pepeekeo  145.190 (-)  PL110.9
Hakalau 146.620 (-)  PL110.9
Laupahoehoe 442.550 (+) PL110.9
We have a simplex node in Kukuihaile AH6AE and we continue to look for someone willing to host a node in Pauuilo and/or Honoka’a area to cover the gaps.
73 and aloha

ARLP020 Propagation de K7RA

Sunspot activity continues, and this reporting week, the average
daily sunspot number rose from 16.1 to 22.7, while average daily
solar flux went from 73.5 to 75.7. The two sunspot groups that
appeared on May 3 and May 6 are fading fast and rotating off the
visible solar disc. Two geomagnetically active days occurred on May
11 and 14, when the planetary A index reached 25 and 36.

Predicted solar flux is 72 on May 16-18, 70 on May 19, 68 on May
20-22, 67 on May 23-29, 70, 72, 74, and 76 on May 30-June 2, 77 on
June 3-11, 75 on June 12, 72 on June 13-14, 70 on June 15, 69 on
June 16-17, 68 on June 18, 67 on June 19-25, and 70, 72, 74, and 76
on June 26-29.

Predicted planetary A index is 28, 20, and 8 on May 16-18, 5 on May
19-27, 10, 12, 8, and 10 on May 28-31, 5 on June 1-15, 8 on June 16,
5 on June 17-23, 10, 12, 8, and 10 on June 24-27, and 5 on June
28-29.

On May 10 Jeff, N8II in West Virginia reported a sporadic E opening
on 10 meters.

“Even a couple of QRP stations with small antenna were loud.
Starting around 1600-1900 UTC, I worked a mobile in South Carolina,
several in north Florida, Louisiana, a couple of Tennessee,
heard/worked all over Texas from Houston to Oklahoma border to west
Texas, Missouri, several Illinois, several Indiana, Wisconsin, two
Iowa, Nebraska,” he said.

“I also worked W2SDR in Salem County, New Jersey, apparently on Es
backscatter; when I turned antenna from west to New Jersey, his
signal did not improve (it was slightly weaker). All were 10-meter
SSB, most were S9 or better.”

Also on May 10, Jon, N0JK, reported 6 meter sporadic-E openings from
Kansas.

“Here in the Midwest, the band was open to W1, W2, W3, and W4. It
was probably the most widespread opening so far this season,” he
reported. “I worked AA2UK FM29 at 1908 UTC on 6 meters. Saw PV8DX
Brazil spotted to W1, W3, and W4.”
