Date T index MUFs 19 Nov -35 Depressed 10 to 30%/near predicted monthly values 20 Nov -35 Depressed 10 to 30%/near predicted monthly values 21 Nov -35 Depressed 10 to 30%/near predicted monthly values COMMENT: SWS HF Communications Warning 16 was issued on 16 November and is current for 17-19 Nov. HF conditions for the AUS/NZ region during the last 24 hours saw MUFs depressions ranging between 10%-30% during local day and night for Equatorial regions. Northern AUS and Southern AUS/NZ regions MUFs ranged from minor depressions to near predicted monthly values during local day and night, and Antarctic regions near predicted monthly values over the UT day. Similar levels of depressed ionospheric support expected for the next 3 days with minor to moderate MUF depressions across all latitude bands due to continued very low levels of ionising radiation from the Sun.
