Es - 10m and 6m WSPR

On 10m just a couple of Es spot by DK6UG (633km) around lunchtime. Otherwise just spots by G4IKZ (18km).

On 6m WSPR plenty of spots again exchanged with G0OQK (98km) but no Es all day.

I guess the last few days of high geomagnetic activity has taken its toll on HF and 6m propagation. Looks like it is a bit better by now, but who knows if more flares are coming ?
Maybe then I can get some use out of my newly mounted HF dipole ;)

Yes, you may be right Jan although I am not sure what effect geomagnetic activity has on Es.

In my experience it has a detrimental effect on Es, with the possible exception of auroral "Es", or Auroral E, as some call it.
