ARLP036 Propagation de K7RA

Solar activity is on the upswing this week.  Average daily sunspot
numbers increased from 21.7 to 50.6, with a high of 77 last
Saturday, August 28.  Average daily solar flux rose from 78.5 to 88.

Average daily planetary A index increased from 4.7 to 9.6, and
average daily middle latitude A index went from 5.7 to 10.7.
Geomagnetic activity peaked on August 27 and 28 due to a coronal
mass ejection.

New sunspot regions appeared on August 26 and 27, and on September 2
Spaceweather.com reported “New Sunspot, Rapidly Growing” to announce
the emergence of AR2863.

Predicted solar flux looks promising, particularly after
mid-September, at 85 and 82 on September 3 and 4, 80 on September 5
and 6, 78 on September 7, 75 on September 8 to 10, 80 on September
11 to 14, 85 on September 15, 90 on September 16 to 30, 85 on
October 1, and 80 on October 2 to 10.  Flux values rise to 90 again
after October 12 in this forecast from September 2.

Predicted planetary A index is 8, 5, 10 and 8 on September 3 to 6, 5
on September 7 to 10, then 10 and 8 on September 11 and 12, 5 on
September 13 to 20, 8 on September 21, 5 on September 22 to 25, then
a big jump to 25, 8, 18, 8, and 12 on September 26 to 30, and back
to 5 on October 1 to 7, then 10 and 8 on October 8 and 9.

Geomagnetic activity forecast for the period September 3 to 29,
2021, from F. K. Janda, OK1HH.

“Geomagnetic field will be
Quiet on September 7 and 8, 10, 14 and 15, 17 and 18, 28 and 29
Quiet to unsettled on September 4 and 5, 13, 16, 19, 22, 25, 27
Quiet to active on September 3, 6, 9, 11 and 12, 20 and 21, 26
Unsettled to active on September 23 and (- 24)
Active to disturbed, nothing predicted

Remarks:
– Parenthesis means lower probability of activity enhancement.
– The situation is confusing, the configuration of active regions
and coronal holes is variable, so this time it is not possible to
make a so-so reliable forecast.  Here and there it happens before
solar activity rises.
– F. K. Janda will travel next week, therefore next forecast will be
compiled on September 16.”

The autumnal equinox will be on Wednesday, September 22 in the
Northern Hemisphere, always a welcome event for HF propagation.
Solar flux is forecast to be higher at that time, also a good sign.

89.5, 89.9, 88.7, 90.6, 84.4, and 84.2, with a mean of 88.
Estimated planetary A indices were 6, 20, 14, 8, 7, 7, and 5, with a
