60m Propagation Project

The objective of our 60M Experiment is to evaluate the band as a viable HF communications link between remote communities and larger centres throughout the Northern Canada Auroral Zone.
To accomplish this, we are gathering a team of interested individuals in various locations to beacon, and monitor beacons from other stations throughout the region.
Beacons heard will are spotted to PSK Reporter. The PSK Reporter data is automatically updated our central data base.
Solar weather data will also update our central database every 15 minutes.
Beacons heard, and solar conditions will be displayed graphically on a common time base to allow the data to be analysed. This feature is currently under development.

The graphs will show us beacons heard by any station and the existing solar conditions at any given time.
From this information we are hoping to learn what solar conditions need to exist to support a reasonable communications path, and what conditions will not.

WARNING: Geomagnetic K-Index of 6 expected Valid From: 2017 Aug 17 1150 UTC Valid To: 2017 Aug 17 1500 UTC Warning Condition: Onset NOAA Scale: G2 – Moderate
NOAA Space Weather Scale descriptions can be found at www.swpc.noaa.gov/noaa-scales-explanation
Potential Impacts: Area of impact primarily poleward of 55 degrees Geomagnetic Latitude. Induced Currents – Power grid fluctuations can occur. High-latitude power systems may experience voltage alarms. Spacecraft – Satellite orientation irregularities may occur; increased drag on low Earth-orbit satellites is possible. Radio – HF (high frequency) radio propagation can fade at higher latitudes. Aurora – Aurora may be seen as low as New York to Wisconsin to Washington state.

**** SPACE WEATHER OUTLOOK ****
Summary For July 10-16
An R1 (Minor) Radio Blackout was observed on 14 July from active Region 2665. This event produced an Earth-directed CME. An S1 (Minor) Solar Radiation Storm was observed on 14 – 15 July due to the R1 Radio Blackout from 14 July. G1 (Minor) and G2 (Moderate) Geomagnetic Storms were observed on 16 July as a result of the 14 July CME.
Outlook For July 17-23
G1-G2 (Minor-Moderate) Geomagntic Storms are likely on 17 July due to continued effects from the 14 July CME. A chance for S1 (Minor) Solar Radiation Storms exists for 17-19 July due to the potential for siginificant flare activity from Region 2665. A chance for R1 (Minor) Radio Blackouts exists for 17-19 July due to the potential for siginificant flare activity from Region 2665.
