I produced this solar discussion at 1030 UTC after distributing my 
propagation outlook but then forgot to send it out, DOH!

We have a new solar cycle 24 sunspot group that has emerged in the NW 
quadrant of the Sun near N29E19. SIDC Belgium assigned it Catania #38 and 
when numbered by NOAA/SWPC it will be #11042. It appears to have a beta 
magnetic signature capable of producing B and C class solar flares.

The solar flux index values are 84.1 82.6 80.5 and the sunspot number 17.
