No significant change in propagation detected today.  Present today was W4NUS, K4CFZ, N3EIO, WA4PGI, KGØVL and W4DEX.  WA4PGI averaged S5 at W4DEX.  He was also copied well at K4CFZ and W4NUS.  Very deep QSB fades was noticed for the first time on the short 24 mile path between W4NUS and W4DEX.  This seems to indicate either one or both antennas at these locations are high angle radiators.  There is likely some ground wave on this short path but at times the signal must be skywave.

N3EIO was heard on CW by W4DEX but was very weak.  No contact was made.

No signal was detected at KGØVL after multiple CW calls were made by W4DEX .
