I wonder if any of you 2m chaps noticed any auroral activity last 
night. In the past couple of days there has been a huge geomagnetic 
storm, with the HF bands being totally dead and there has been reports 
of auroral on VHF. Might have affected things in last nights contest.

(myself I didn't even listen, though with the HF bands dead I might 
have found more QSOs there even with my vertical...).
