If one checks the NOAA POES Auroral site the polar activity level is 1. 
That means minimum attenuation across the poles, and almost no attenuation 
for example from W0, W5, etc. to Asia, and just a little aurora attenuation 
as signals pass from W8 to Asia.
I have only seen an "Activity Level = 1" once in the last year!!!
This could mean great copy on 160 this morning,
