The World with a sunspot number of 23 and Solar Flux of 73

We have QRN here in EN52ui from Com Ed-the local power company. They shut the main down and the noise went away for 24 hours. With the increase of sunspots and solar flux and the decrease in QRN, I saw Many EU stations, Russia, Pakistan(6RWF), Japan (JE2PMC) and New Zealand (ZL1PZ & ZL4AS) . When Com Ed turned the main back on after tightening the insulators, the noise came back but at a lower level. Here is today's map from http://www.pskreporter.info/pskmap.html?kb9bny.
