The only burst of solar 2800MHz flux this year seems
to have occurred around March 22nd. Check it out on
Waiting patiently for 27 days I expected to see the repeat: result zip, diddly,
54 days later, oualou, rien, nichts, semmi.

of light. Three days later, the sun yawned, spewed out an extra 20 Solar Flux Units
at 2800MHz and went back to sleep.
Question: was this a "soliton" wave reaction

Am I the only person to bother about such things?
