3G9A on 20M with a Coronal Disturbance

I worked 3G9A at 2330z 3:30 PST), and as you can see, they are in sunlight still:

They were very easy to work, and while the Falklands is no big deal from my QTH, I am at least watching 20M to see when it is open and when it closes. They were only S7 at best, but Q5, even with some crackly static sounding noise. The A is 10 and there is a coronal hole pointing at earth right as I worked them. It took only 2 calls to work them – easy peasy, and I expect that this is about as bad as it gets noise wise, which is only S3, but pulsing to S5 at times.
