Are we talking about A index or something else. Everything I have ever read and observed supported a lower A index as being better for propagation...25 is not a good number to be sure, but as I understand things, going higher isn't going to make things better?

Nothing good. A Index was in the 70s past couple weeks.
Back at height of last couple Cycles it was around 125. Higher the number the better the propagation.
