Later last Monday GMT-time there was a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) that clobbered the upper bands.See the post here:http://www.southgatearc.org/propagation/2011/g0kya/solar_cme_and_flares_kill_upper_hf_bands.htmBelow I quote an excellent passage from the above referenced post:“Ideally we want to see a high solar flux index, coupled with a low K index, and a Bz interplanetary magnetic field that points North (so reducing the coupling of CMEs into the earth's magnetic field).
