Again local propagation out to a few hundred miles was good with the usual very noticeable QSB.  Reports between WA1AC, WA4LDU, KP2AE, W4NUS and W4DEX ranged from S5 to S9 during QSB cycles.  AB4AM at over 200 miles was good SSB copy at the above locations but local noise at his location prevented a two way QSO for all but WA4LDU.  WB4EZ at 202 miles from W4DEX was better than yesterday but still below what has been normal.

WW8II on CW at 510 miles initially was 419 at W4DEX but later barely detectable.  KGØVL copied WW8II on CW at over 400 miles but no two way QSO was made.  KGØVL did not detect CW from W4DEX today at 808 miles.  

At the close of the daily session K4TEG in TN checked in with a good S3 signal.  The distance to W4DEX is about 139 miles.  

So far most days that NOAA has issued a Space Weather Alert we have found propagation about the same as it was today.
