Having only been active for a few years on 6m (apart form a short spell on the band in 1988/89) I had until this week worked very few stations on 6m Aurora (just one in August 2011 according to my electronic log) and a few many years ago on 2m SSB.

On 6m that changed yesterday (15 July) with 27 further Auroral contacts being made on 6m SSB (plus two on 2m SSB) between 1413 and 1828, as well as hearing a significant number of other stations via AU.

I heard a couple of stations suggesting that this was the most significant Auroral event for many years - it certainly much better than any I can recall.
