COMMENT: Minor to moderate degradations in HF conditions and
MUF depressions may be observed across northern Aus/NZ regions
for the next three days due to low ionisation in the ionosphere
as the solar activity continues to remain at very low levels
and also due to an expected rise in geomagnetic activity levels
on 12 and 13 October. Minor to moderate degradations in HF conditions
and depressions in MUFs may also be possible in the southern
parts of Aus/NZ regions on 12 and 13 October due to the expected
enhancements in the geomagnetic activity on these days.
