    W4HM        Howard    Harpers Ferry, WV    316 miles
    WA9FDO    Mike        Brownsburg, IN         316 miles
    KGØVL      Jeff           Fairbank, IA               808 miles  (Best DX)

    N9HLL       Rick         Lebanon, IN               316 miles

Two way exchange was made with all except K3BM.

WA4PGI, WA4LDU, WB4EZ, KD4RLD and KP2AE had good copy on KGØVL at times and probably could have made a complete QSO had they caught Jeff on a peak.  WA4LDU to KGØVL is 833 miles.

Jeff, KGØVL, reported:   strong magnetic conditions here in Iowa last night around 0500 utc,  with good aurora cw  returns from the EN09/b on 50 mcs.  You are now calling on 1.900 at 1818 utc and very loud.  In fact, I can hear you in the other room!
