I have on several occasions, while I am  listening to my own signals (in CW) 
on the SAT's  AO-07, FO-29 and VO-52,  when they are LOS to the North of the 
US and have copied the signals down  to -6 degrees on nights that there have 
Aurora alerts posted from several reflectors that I subscribe to.  Most of 
the time my Northern LOS for these birds is 1 to 2 degrees when there are no 
alerts.  Certainly no expert on this phenomenon, but I believe that the 
signals are enhanced beyond the normal range during the enhancement
