There are only 8 days left to try and log TX7M from Marquesas. Somehow I managed to miss this crew that has been operating from the island since October 19th. Between T32C wrapping up their DXpedition this Wednesday and ZK2X just starting their operation from Niue I’m seriously gonna have to try and put up the dipole someplace and work them on as many freqs as possible. *sigh* If only I had digital capabilities.

(ARRL) The average daily sunspot numbers this week were up 57 percent over the previous seven days, rising from 41.6 to 65.6, while the average daily solar flux rose just 3 points to 89.1. There seem to be plenty of sunspots of late, but none have been large, and so the sunspot number and solar flux are not as high as in some previous months. A new sunspot appeared on July 7, then three more the next day on July 8, and then a new one each day on July 9, 10 and 11, and two more on July 13, with another two on July 14. A coronal mass ejection on July 9 gave us some geomagnetic activity a couple of days later. Sunspot numbers for July 7-13 were 42, 65, 55, 67, 72, 62 and 96, with a mean of 65.6. The 10.7 cm flux was 85.5, 85.8, 85.6, 90.7, 90.1, 91.7 and 94.6, with a mean of 89.1. The estimated planetary A indices were 6, 8, 12, 12, 13, 8 and 8, with a mean of 9.6. The estimated mid-latitude A indices were 6, 6, 10, 8, 10, 7 and 6, with a mean of 7.6.
