Sunspots and 10m - Wed Jan 27th 2016

Solar flux is 112 today. Sunspot number is 61 (K=1) and the 10m propagation forecast remains "poor" today.  With decent solar flux and quite respectable sunspot and K numbers, I would expect 10m WSPR to be quite decent today.  OK, on average, solar activity is declining, but this is on average. Today the numbers are quite good.

UPDATE 1038z:  So far, just G8VDQ (93km) spotted on 10m WSPR today. It is still quite early though.

Hello Roger, is it todays sunspot number and K/A index or is it a prediction? I don't trust these gadgets anymore. They are showing us the numbers from hours ago, I don't think it is real time.
What do you think about it? 73, Bas

I go to Hamqsl and pick up the forecasts for today's date before showing them. The latest data uses the information LIVE, but this can change during the day. Like you, I am skeptical, but I use the latest data I have available to me.
