PLEASE NOTE: April 2022 - WR-3 Receiver construction is ongoing after a delay in mid-March 2022, and I continue to list in batches of 3 to 4 WR-3 Receivers on eBay (vlfradio) monthly or so (every 4 to 6 weeks BUT perhaps longer due to my other work endeavours). Perform an eBay search for "WR-3 ELF-VLF Receiver" and the listing should appear first.
Thanks everyone, everywhere, for your fascination with Earth's lovely Natural-Radio signals! (Please READ the WR-3 Listening Guide FULLY before eBay-ordering so as to answer many FAQs.) Solar Cycle 25 increases suddenly quite spectacularly!... - SpM.

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 finally-depart a deep Solar-Minimum (late 2020). The Solar-Flux (2800 MHz_ reached 101 on 08 September 2021 and large sunspot groups are appearing at high solar latitudes, thus exhibiting good signs of the coming Cycle 25 rising-up along with a ramping-up of good outbtreaks of fine natural radio listening and phenomena. Aurora appears most frequently and brightly during the equinoctal periods around late-September and early-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 -- conditions ripe for whistlers.
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 toward Thompson, Manitoba; The Peace Country of Alberta; or Hay River, NWT (as I did in June 1996). Find an electrically-quiet camping location and enjoy the ELF-VLF show, too! (We are coming out of 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.
