Hi John, exactly the same noted here, the signal started to drop and I could see on the waterfall that there was a lot of selective fading on the signal, it started to drop out a lot after 20:20.
Apart from the slightly late start it had been very good up until then. This may have been to blame:
Strong solar flare and CME
After days of suspenseful quiet, huge sunspot AR2665 finally erupted on July 14th (0209 UT), producing a powerful M2-class solar flare.
The explosion was underway for more than two hours and hurled a bright coronal mass ejection (CME) toward Earth.
Geomagnetic storms and high-latitude auroras are likely when the CME arrives this weekend.
