PLEASE NOTE: 23 Sept 2020 - I have been pressing-forward with WR-3 receiver construction and three will be posted on eBay shortly. The fires have been immense and awful with blanketing smoke here in the region (Sierra Nevada Mountains) with smoke as thick as never before experienced, but clear-air sometimes, too. Australia experienced this in Nov. to Jan. 2020, also! WR-3 variants such as "WR-3E" and "WR-21S" (loudspeaker-version) available, too, perhaps - do check eBay (vlfradio). Thanks everyone, everywhere, for your fascination with Earth's lovely signals. 23 Sept. 2020 update V3 - SpM.

Manitoba Aurora - Aug. 1996 photo

A Summer 1996 photo of gorgeous aurora over northern Manitoba, Canada, taken during my Manitoba Solar-Minimum VLF Expedition way back on 22 August 1996. Central/Northern Manitoba, Canada is an excellent region in North America (in late-Summer when it is still mild weather) to see gorgeous Aurora Borealis. If you wish to witness this incredible spectacle for yourself, you don't have to wait until the cold/dark of winter to go northward to see gorgeous Aurora if you head for central/northern Manitoba or Saskatchewan, Canada in late August or early September. I love the vast Canadian Boreal Forest region for its feeling of deep-wilderness! - "The True North Strong and Free."

Furthermore, I cannot recommend highly enough to anyone whom wishes to see the aurora for yourself--from experience I can highly suggest that the finest period is the four weeks surrounding 01 September. Presently, auroral displays and also natural-radio phenomena are at a minimum due to overall minimal solar-activity as we approach deep Solar-Minimum, although some report signs of the coming Cycle 25 with new Sunspots occurring at high solar latitude already). Aurora appears most frequently and brightly during the equinoctal periods around September and April (due to the alignment of Earth's magnetic-field and the IPF). Periods of fast solar-wind streams (>500 to 600 km/sec speeds) will often produce nice aurora and potentially a magnetic storm, too.

Thus, late August through mid-September will definitely present the mildest/warmest weather for viewing (short sleeves/pants weather) Summer Prairie-Beauty Canadian weather! Do head for Canada's High Plains/Boreal Forest region in late Summer. To be deep into the optimal locations under the auroral-oval for the most superb Aurora enjoyment, journey up to Thompson, Manitoba or Hay River, NWT (as I did in June 1996). Find an electrically-quiet location and enjoy the ELF-VLF show, too! (We are in a very low Solar-Minimum presently and so the signals are considerably more rare and challenging to capture compared to my previous recording-expeditions presented herein.) SpM.



This is my website presenting the span of the time-period between June 1989 to the present in 2020 that I have been researching and field-recording natural ELF-VLF radio phenomena (primarily) via the Magnetosphere, and other forms of radio "DXing" also.
