Default Solar storm

A solar storm is in progress, Planetary K-index = 5. The short wave
bands here are pretty dead.

From spaceweather.com:

A G1-class geomagnetic storm is underway on Aug. 31st as Earth enters a
stream of fast moving solar wind. First contact with the stream sparked
bright auroras over Alaska. Forecasters expect the solar wind around
Earth to blow faster than 600 km/s for at least the next 24 hours, so
more high-latitude auroras are possible on Sept.1st.
