COMMENT: IPS Preliminary HF Communications Warning 7 was issued 
on 12 April and is current for 13-14 Apr. HF conditions were 
mostly normal today with minor to moderate MUF enhancements. 
Similar conditions are expected for 13-Apr. Minor to significant 
MUF depressions and degradations in HF conditions are expected 
on 14-15 Apr, especially in mid and Southern Aus/NZ regions, 
due to expected enhancements in geomagnetic activity levels during 
this period. Chance of sudden ionospheric disturbances (SWFs) 
on circuits with daylight sectors.
