ARLP027 Propagation de K7RA

No sunspots this week. The pattern persists, and this surprises me.
But Spaceweather.com reported a couple of weak, barely emerging
spots, never numbered, and by their magnetic polarity were from new
Solar Cycle 25.

We rely on NOAA for official sunspot numbers, and the most recent
one reported was 11 on June 15. See,
ftp://ftp.swpc.noaa.gov/pub/indices/DSD.txt

Average daily solar flux over the recent reporting week (June 25 to
July 1) averaged 68.6 up from 67.7 over the previous seven days.
Average daily planetary A index was 4.7, the same as the average
middle latitude A index.

Predicted solar flux over the next 45 days is 68, every day July 3
to August 16, which is hardly a promising outlook. Even with no
sunspots, it would be nice to see solar flux values north of 70.

Predicted planetary A index is 5 on July 3-26, 8 on July 27-28, 5 on
July 29 through August 1, 8 on August 2-3, and 5 on August 4-16.

Geomagnetic activity forecast for the period July 3-29, 2020 from
OK1HH.

“Geomagnetic field will be,
quiet on: July 3, 9-11, 14, 18-22.
quiet to unsettled on: July 4, 8, 12-13, (15, 17,) 25-28.
quiet to active on: (July 5-7, 16, 23-24, 29).
unsettled to active on: None!
active to disturbed: None!

“Solar wind will intensify on: July (4,) 5-8, (9-10, 16-18, 21-22,)
23-25, (26-27).

“Remarks:
– Parenthesis means lower probability of activity enhancement.
– The predictability of changes remains in the long run lower as
there are very few indications.

“F. K. Janda, OK1HH.”

This video is quite dramatic and remarkable. An entire decade of
continuous solar rotation images compressed into an hour:

Mike, KA3JAW reported from Easton, PA urging everyone to monitor
29.6 MHz FM. He heard nothing on 10 meter FM over Field Day weekend.
I will start doing this myself now with a new radio that covers that
band/mode.

Thanks to AA2F for catching errors in the A index averages appearing
in the ARRL Letter (my fault), so I could correct them in this
bulletin.

indices were 3, 6, 7, 4, 3, 4, and 6, with a mean of 4.7. Middle
latitude A index was 2, 6, 6, 4, 4, 5, and 6, with a mean of 4.7.
