The news headlines

* The Queen visits NASA for space link up

* RAIBC expresses gratitude at money raised

* GOAKI to visit the National Space Centre Amateur Radio Society

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip visited NASA's Goddard Space
Flight Centre in Greenbelt, Maryland on Tuesday. NASA astronaut Michael
Foale, KB5UAC, introduced the Queen to the crew of the international
space station as they orbited Earth. Her majesty was greeted by the
three astronauts, Commander Fyodor Yurchikin, RN3FI and flight
engineers Oleg Kotov and Suni Williams, KD5PLB, who spoke to the Queen
using a live video link up.

The crew members each spoke briefly to the Queen describing life on the
space station and the importance of human space flight. Later the Royal
couple attended the visitor's centre and the Queen talked with students
at a NASA Explorer School Workshop. Before they left, the Queen planted
a commemorative dogwood tree on the grounds of the visitor's centre.

The tour of Goddard took place near the end of the Queen's visit to
commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Jamestown settlement in
Virginia.

The Radio Amateur Invalid and Blind Club, RAIBC, would like to thank
the all individuals for their donations of equipment and funds. The
Worked All Britain Group generously donated #200 to the club. This
money will be used to fund the Reading Rattle group which produces
Radial, PW, RadCom, Radio user in audio formats for RAIBC members.

A new RAIBC contest is to run the week of 30 July to 5 August. The
contest is open to all members of the RAIBC and will run for one hour a
day. All frequencies and modes are permitted, with extra points
available for working with the other RAIBC members.

from 29 April to 6 May compiled by Neil Clarke, G0CAS.

Solar activity increased to low on the 2nd, 5th and the 6th, the
remaining days activity was very low. The largest solar flare of the
period was a C8 on the 2nd. This was the largest solar flare so far
this year but it had very little effect on propagation. Solar flux
levels declined from 87 units on the 30th to 78 by the 6th. During this
time the large sunspot group gradually decreased in size. The average
was 84 units. On the 6th the 90 day solar flux average remained at the
same level as last week at 74 units. X-ray flux levels averaged A3.3
units and declined from A5.4 units on the 30th to A2.5 by the 6th.
Geomagnetic activity on the 30th was unsettled with an Ap index of 20
units. This was due to a coronal hole disturbance. The rest of the
period activity was quiet. The average was Ap 6 units. The ACE
spacecraft saw solar wind speeds decline from 700 kilometres per second
on the 30th to 260 by the 6th. Particle densities were low throughout
the period. Bz varied between minus and plus 6 nanoTeslas on the 30th
and between minus and plus 2 nanoTeslas on the quiet days. While HF
propagation was slightly degraded during the periods of heightened
geomagnetic activity, by the end of the week 14MHz was providing good
openings to the BS7H expedition around breakfast time and the early
evening. Seasonal changes meant that the band remained open until after
2230UTC on most days. The first strong sporadic-E on 50MHz was reported
on the 1st and 2nd. VHF aurora occurred on the29th and the 30th, though
openings appear to have favoured North America. And many areas of the
UK enjoyed enhanced VHF and UHF propagation, related to the extended
period of warm weather.

5 And finally the solar forecast. This week the quiet side of the Sun
is expected to be looking our way. Solar activity should be very low as
the Sun could be spotless on some days. Solar flux levels are expected
to be in the high 60's for most of the week. Geomagnetic activity
should be at quiet levels everyday, however, next weekend a small
coronal hole disturbance could take place. MUFs during daylight hours
at equal latitudes should be about 18MHz for the south and 15MHz for
the north. The darkness hour lows should be around 10MHz. Paths this
week to Japan should have a maximum usable frequency with a 50 per cent
success rate of about 18MHz. The optimum working frequency with a 90
per cent success rate will be around 14MHz. The best time to try this
path will be between 1000 and 1300 hours UTC. Sporadic-E is expected to
take place on some days. And that's all for this week from the
propagation team.
