So far it's been a boon to propagation. It's like 2013 up there in the ionosphere.

Agree on the boon. Had a blast calling cq tonight on 20m! I'm in nh and I had my first multi hour pileup. Probably more than half west of the Mississippi (I'm in nh) many from west coast States and one guy from Atlanta area with 5 watts.
Someone said the solar farts hit the planet around 7am Edt and it was like throwing the off switch.  Started to open up around noon. Prop has been pretty good last few weeks for me but tonight was crazy. Is this typical after a cme? I'm one year new to the hobby so learning. Also looked at the pics of the sun on Nasa today and it may not be the glory days but more spots than I have seen in the past year.

 Everything tonight is topsy-turvey with 80m CW very distorted and raspy, even w1aw.
w1aw almost un-heard on 40m here in Ohio which is quite strange.
