Hi R.J.
I am seeing a little change in the noise floor level each day as it gets
cooler here.
If I were pointed closer to the sun, I might see higher readings at
High noon.. (The flux was 117 the other day) But right now,
I'm pointing about 21 degrees down from the Sun's path.
It's not much of a blip on the Pwr vs RA chart..

I hope this gets there, I'm trying out an old modem.. So far it's
