Another small Aurora opening

SWPC_Aurora_Map_N-201409122255We had another small Aurora opening tonight. Was really waiting for it after the big solar flare 2 days ago. Unfortunately it arrived a little bit too late on earth so the major “impact” was over the Atlantic Ocean. Must have been fantastic to view if one were on a ship or certainly even better onboard a plane flying from Europe to North America. 😉 Would it have arrived maybe 4-5 hours earlier we would have had a super Aurora here in Europe. So it became only a small one that did not reach much south. Anyway, always fun to hear those raspy signals, see below. The following nice QSOs were worked:

Signals were very much in & out. Did not have a very stable opening at all. Anyway, here are a few audio recordings again:
