Sunspots,10m and 6m

Sunspot count is 102 today (higher than of late) and 20-30MHz propagation is forecast to be “good”, so better than of late. 10m could be better for F-layer propagation today.

So far, it has been quiet on 6m again with just locals spotting me on WSPR  – G4IKZ (18km)  and G4KPX (14km). No sign of Es yet at 1040z.
