48 metres was alive around 1900 with Laser (6220), Reflections Europe (6295), King (6210) and possibly Atlantis (6205), but all disappeared before dark. The K index is quite high and short and medium skip were missing after dark on 48. The A index would suggest solar flare activity, so the bands will be poor for a day or two!
