I've had reasonable results from this contest in the past.

Yesterday and today -- awful !  Few signals on 20m, and most of those are weak.  Some 15m activity yesterday, but nothing today.  (It's 11:24 local time (PDT) in Vancouver BC, 18:24 GMT).

. . . Is it just me?

I see the K-index is elevated.   If this is "moderate" space weather, I don't want to see anything worse!

Thanks --

Yesterday (Saturday) it wasn't all that bad, but today...

It is the PITS !!!!

Signals weak as heck IF they are there at all.
We are experiencing the effects of a CME that hit
the earths magnetic field around 0600z this morning.
A Index is at 10 and K Index is at 6...Major magnetic storm.

Me thinks it is time for a nice Sunday snooze with my terrier.
She LOVES afternoon naps.
