Another casualty of Putin`s war:
dxsignal.ru is closed forever. Just because of the current world tensions. I don’t believe that any peaceful solution arises in the foreseeable future.
Thanks to you all!

Sri Lanka’s economy has collapsed and the country has almost run out of fuel.
From tomorrow 3 hour per day rolling power blackouts are being imposed.
Unless broadcasters are exempt or have their own back up diesel generators there may be temporary radio silence.
The power cuts don’t seem to warrant a mention on the SLBC website!

SURPRISE GEOMAGNETIC STORM: A minor G1-class geomagnetic storm broke out around midnight (UT) on June 25-26. Forecasters aren’t sure why. The prime suspect is an unexpected CME embedded in the solar wind. So far no auroras have been reported from the 6 hour storm.
