Propagation de K7RA

7 December, 2019

No sunspots again this week. This run of zero sunspots has persisted for over three weeks.

In last week's bulletin, we erroneously said that average daily sunspot number for the week was 70.4, but as KB8W pointed out this was the value of average daily solar flux. Average daily solar flux for this week, November 28 through December 4, was 70.2.

Geomagnetic indicators were very quiet, with average planetary A index declining from 8.3 to 3.4, while average mid-latitude A index slipped from 5.7 to 2.

Predicted solar flux for the next 45 days is 70, in fact that is the value forecast for every one of those days, all the way through January 19.

Predicted planetary A index is 5 on December 6 and 7, then 8 on December 8 and 9, 5 on December 10 to 17, then 12, 10, 8 and 8 on December 18 to 21, 5 on December 22 to 29, 8 on December 30 and 31,

5 on January 1 to 3, 8 on January 4, 5 on January 5 to 8, 6 on January 9, 5 on January 10 to 13, then 12, 10, 8 and 8 again on January 14 to 17, and 5 on January 18 and 19.

Spaceweather.com pointed out the Geminid meteor shower is coming up soon, peaking December 13 and 14, just in time for the ARRL Ten Meter Contest next week on December 14 and 15. Ionized meteor trails may enhance 10 meter propagation.

This article from 2012 describes the source of the Geminids:

This year the full moon appears on December 12, which may interfere with viewing the meteor shower.

F. K. Janda, OK1HH sent his geomagnetic activity forecast for the period December 6 to 31, 2019

"Geomagnetic field will be:

quiet on: December 12, 15 to 17, 23, 28 to 31 quiet to unsettled on: December 9 to 11, 13, 24 to 27 quiet to active on: December 6 to 8, 14, 18, 22 unsettled to active on: December 21 active to disturbed on: December (19 and 20)

Solar wind will intensify on: December (13 and 14, 16,) 18 to 21.

Parenthesis means lower probability of activity enhancement.

Everything suggests that we are very close to the minimum of the 11-year cycle now."

Updates on the Parker Solar Probe (thanks to Max White):

Thanks to David Moore for this on solar magnetic waves:

Jon Jones, N0JK reported on 6 meter sporadic-e on December 4:
"The winter sporadic-E season began with a strong, long lasting Es opening across North America and the Caribbean December 4. Es first appeared early around 1400z from W5 to W8, and lasted all day to 0040z December 5.

I was on from home (Lawrence, KS EM28) around 1830z and made a dozen 6 Meter FT8 contacts in Florida and Georgia.

Later while driving from Lawrence to Salina, stopped on highway 177 south of Manhattan, Kansas (EM18) and set up fixed mobile. 10 watts and 1/4 wave magnet mount. Made 7 FT8 contacts in Florida, Georgia, and Virginia. Was called by WA1EAZ FN42 and decoded WU1ITU FN65 several times. N0LL (EM09) decoded HH2AA, but no QSO. Other DX spotted included TI5/N5BEK, XE1MEX, XE2AT, XE2JS, HI8DL, HI8PLE, KP4EIT, HI8RD, NP3XF, NP4BM, and LU5FF Es - TEP by KW4BY."

The Royal Observatory of Belgium (http://www.sidc.be/silso/home) has an interesting page showing sunspot number predictions for the next 12 months:

Thanks to Max White for this, on observing the ionosphere from Antarctica:

Found this on Galileo's sunspot drawings, presented as animation:

The ARRL 160 meter contest begins today at 2200 UTC. The predicted quiet geomagnetic conditions are a good sign. See http://www.arrl.org/160-meter for details.

Sunspot numbers for November 28 through December 4, 2019 were 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, and 0, with a mean of 0. 10.7 cm flux was 70.2, 69.8, 70.4, 71.2, 70.4, 69.9, and 69.6, with a mean of 70.2. Estimated planetary A indices were 4, 5, 4, 4, 2, 2, and 3, with a mean of 3.4. Middle latitude A index was 2, 3, 2, 2, 2, 1, and 2, with a mean of 2.
