Oops!  I may have overshot and put in 24:09 instead of 24:00 hours.  We'll let
the HQ people sort it out.

No NT section.  40 was my best band by far with well over half my QSOs,
including being called on that band by NP2B, WP3R and KL7WV.  I had to S&P KH7X
instead of running him, but that was also a 40m QSO. 

Interesting that the people at SpaceWeather.com say the flare occurred at 1725Z,
but I clearly noticed the effects at 1717Z when the 20m band I was running on
suddenly sounded dead and I went searching to find any signals at all, finding
only 3, all locals, on the whole 20m CW band.  I worked K3DI at
1719Z, having already logged the other two locals I found.  Can it be that the
Sun "telegraphs its punches" to the ionosphere? 

Station:  TS-830-S driving Titan 425 amp
