Earth-orbiting satellites detected an X1-class solar flare from sunspot AR1875 on Oct. 28th at 0203 UT. This is the 3rd X-flare since Oct. 25th, which means solar activity is still high.

X-ray Class: X1.0

Not great news for HF but might be good for VHF / UHF bands! Time will tell....

I'll be looking for you on the Bands! :)
