June 21, 2020: The solar flare butterfly diagram at solarcyclescience.com|
shows how most early-cycle flares occur at high latitude on the sun,
so are less effective at earth. Watch solar images for mid-latitude,

July 16, 2019: SILO discussion of spotless days, flare Cycle 24-25 transition,
updated July 16, next update early October. Thanks WA6SZE.
July 2, 2019: Another, fleeting Cycle 25 flare,
appeared briefly in the mid latitude of southern solar hemisphere.
During the Cycle 24-25 transition, low and mid latitude flares may occur.
May, 2019: Solar flare cycle forecast, Royal Observatory of Belgium, Brussels:
Minimum occurs between July 2019 and September 2020.
The next peak 2024-26, similar to the last cycle
April 5, 2019: Solar Cycle 25 Prediction Panel expects
Cycle 24-25 minimum to occur mid 2019 to mid 2020
Cycle 25 is anticipated to peak 2023-2026, with a sunspot range of 95-130,
well below the average 140-220.
July 2018: RX off the side of a beam with a simple 20m magnetic loop,
inductively fed with a driven loop, tuned with simple tubular capacitor.
May be constructed of coax. Directional in the plane of the loop.
Hang from a tree, 1 or more loop diameters above ground.
