Current Location of the Auroral Oval
The image above is the most recent VIS image
of the northern polar auroral oval, taken by the POLAR spacecraft.
Use this (and the following) aurora image together with the forecast tables and
geomagnetic data to determine whether the signal path you intend to use will
cross through the auroral ovals or be affected by higher levels of geomagnetic
activity. These conditions will quickly reduce DX probabilities on 160
The image above is the most recent ultraviolet image
of the northern polar auroral oval, taken by the POLAR spacecraft. Lines of
latitude and longitude are denoted by the dashed blue lines. Contintental
outlines are also shown in green.
