2. FORECAST (29 APRIL - 05 MAY)
Solar: Low with a slight chance of M class activity.

Geomagnetic:  Quiet to Unsettled with possible Active periods 
for 30Apr-03May due to recurrent coronal hole effects.

Frequencies:  Possibility of depressed MUFs for mid to high
latitudes on 01May-03May due to increased geomagnetic activity.  
MUFs near predicted monthly values on other days.
