Reception at my location over the past two weeks has been poor due to the vast number of solar flares and their concomitant effects on the geomagnetic poles of the earth. Do broadcasters honestly expect their listeners to tolerate the inability to receive their broadcasts for two weeks? Clearly, nearly ALL digital broadcasts are demonstrably underpowered in less than ideal conditions. Furthermore, more broadcasters along with the HFCC need to allocate more spectrum of the 60, 49, and 41 meter bands to digital broadcasts as well. Either broadcast digital in the 60, 49, and 41 meter bands or be exiled to the 13 meter band!

Since beginning to listen to shortwave a couple of years ago, this stretch is the worst that I've encountered thus far.
