Interesting... I didn't get any real heavy periods of traffic, calls were:

15:47:00 EAM
15:51:00 EAM
16:06:00 EAM
18:35:00 EAM

I was on 8992 on Utwente. Very heavy jamming on that freq about 20 mins ago, switched to 11175 now. It sounded like there might have been a message going out right at the start of the jamming so marked it as an "unconfirmed" call.

Do you have an estimate or log of number of messages during the high traffic period, as well as the times it covered?

Edit: EAM at 2135z

Edit: 0122z: Some two way comms on 11175, pretty weak, but discussing fuelling arrangements with ground crew.
Edit: 0304z: More mainsail comms between now and the last one, this one currently a phone patch request to "ops". Didn't catch the aircraft callsign but he sounded nice and relaxed. Probably related to the exercises?

Triple posting but just as a heads up - solar activity is increasing today and we've just had a filament release. Chance of radio blackouts in the coming days.

Since it's been a quarter of a day, I'm going to double post here. I haven't had a message in a while.

We've got a test count.

Hate to double post, but it's been almost a day.

We've got a sounder.

Long as they arent useless, nothing wrong with double posts. As far as i have found, your posts arent useless.
