Trans-Atlantic opening at 40 MHz – 13th Jan 2023

With the solar flux now up over the 200 mark, there was another trans-Atlantic opening on the 40 MHz band on Friday 13th January 2023.

In the past, the only thing we had to warn about potential trans-Atlantic openings on the 50 MHz (6m) band was strong signals on 28 MHz or utility signals in the low VHF spectrum. Now that there are stations transmitting on the 40 MHz band, it acts as a much better indicator that something might happen higher up in frequency.

It really does show the potential of 40 MHz as a beacon band when there is a rising F2 MUF due to solar activity. It really isn’t ‘just another band’ as some might suggest.

A list of transmitting and receiving stations is shown below with question marks after the dubious ones which may be reports for the wrong band.
