W4DEX was not on today for the 1730UT test due to setting up for Winter Field Day. However the frequency was recorded for later review. Stations heard were WA1AC S8, WW8II CW 559 and SSB S1, K4DBK S1, WA9FDO S5, W2RLB/2 S2 and N4AOW S1. Stations know to be on due to having a QSO with one of the above was W3BQG, N3EIO and WO4L.
The above stations that were received were noticeably down in signal strength compared to previous time heard. Perhaps this was due to a C class solar flare that occurred just prior to 1700 UT.
