@Texprep

That is so interesting, I would have guessed the opposite.
Any idea why.

@Moosecall, Here’s something that may help explain it.

Got it, makes perfect sense now. Txs

HF radio communications of various forms including two way radio communications, maritime mobile radio communications, radio broadcasting, amateur radio communications, and in fact any form of radio communications that uses the HF bands and ionospheric radio propagation is very dependent upon the state of the ionosphere. The higher the levels of radiation received from the Sun, the greater the levels of ionisation in the ionosphere and in general this brings better propagation conditions for HF radio communications.
