Propagation today was different today possibly due to a C class flare that occurred earlier in the day.  Signals on the less than 200 mile paths between WA4LDU, KP2AE, WA4PGI, KW4DE and W4DEX had slow very deep QSB fades.  WW8II on CW was 519 copy at W4DEX. 

A solid CW QSO was made on the 443 mile path between KGØVL and WW8II:

17:32 WW8II-BRUCE: Good solid contact Jeff 559 
17:33 WW8II-BRUCE: was the best I have heard signals in the last week..
17:34 KG0VL-JEFF: Same here Bruce, I didn't even have time to get the headphones on. Heard you off the inverted L 

W4DEX was able to copy most of the above contact. A few minutes later a solid CW QSO was made between KGØVL and W4DEX
