seems this African dust (or what ever is) lowered propagation, for 3 days was dust, almost nothing down here to Greece, hardly (very weak) heard 1 Spanish & 5-6 eastern block languages only (possibly was very strong stations) ... today afternoon was way less dust & was better, managed to speak at EU ch20 with Germania (as he called, possibly Germany) Alexander

But my point posting, Do Not know in UK if there is African Dust, here in Greece seems is effecting propagation ... at peak dust times if look far distance the atmosphere was blurry slightly dark

I haven't had many minutes for radio since the weekend, but in the short time I have used it, propagation does seem to be generally a lot worse these few days on 10 & 11m.

We do occasionally have Saharan dust in UK, Babis. More we notice it when it rains and when it dries up the nice clean vehicles on the streets are covered with it. I do not know if it would kill HF propagation. For UHF and microwave it could because heavy rain, snow ect can effect those higher frequencies.

If I get time I'll do a search to see if any studies out there relating to the sand and HF prop, but for now I think it is mostly our Sun to blame. Solar Flux Index has dropped compared to some days in past month, though it is still over 100 which is good for 10/11m.

I am sure it will pick up again, plus... we are getting toward Sporadic E season where you can almost throw away propagation prediction charts. E skip doesn't appear to care too much about SFI and other solar parameters, it just happens. Sometimes lasts just a short minute, sometimes hours. Keep your radio on over next few months, I am sure you'll receive some fun DX Smile

Yesterday ... UK Band too many Religious Broadcast, all appeared for about 10-15min then disappeared
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,9,1012,14,15,16,20,22,24,25,30,36,38,40

Maybe i am hearing transmissions traveled to space & coming back after 20 years lol! tongue

some channels are not at the video because appeared few minutes later or earlier, & some at video are weak signals that early was stronger, or later was audible .. so here a continuous UK Band scan how many was at once, only ch19 was chatting, all the rest even very weak ones was Religious



Also heard at EU Band ch20 CQ's from Ivan from Russia Samara City (very far from me) but could not hear me replying back ... while ch20 Swedish Repeater managed to Reach it few times

Nice capture. Mostly from Ireland I think. Whenever I hear them I have to fight the urge to press the ptt key and talk to the congregation... whatever I may or may not believe in, I don't want to risk getting smited from the heavens.
