Solar flux was low and geomagnetic field quiet but propagation wasn't very good today.  Just before 1630UT WW8II on CW was barely detectable at W4DEX.  A second transmission made at approximately 1645 UT was improved but still only about 319 at W4DEX.  WA4LDU also heard WW8II's CW.  Propagation was so poor AB4AM's big signal was barely detectable at WA4LDU and  W4DEX and not heard at WA1AC.  KD4RLD was copying WA4LDU, WA1AC, and W4DEX but only W4DEX was able to copy him.  Everyone noticed fast deep QSB fades taking signal close to the noise level.
