Scary stuff!

Could be a boon to one type of propagation and a hindrance to another, depending on which ionospheric layers are affected.

Just a thought - don't all actions have an equal and opposite reaction? The after effects of such tests could be devastating for propagation.

Thoughts Geoffrey?

Maybe the Russians have already been doing this. Why do you think all the best openings have been way out east?

Good DX.
