Today we had WW8II, KGØVL, K5HFG, KP2AE, WA1AC, KW4DE, WA4LDU, W2AZQ and W4DEX.  Close in propagation between KP2AE and W4DEX at 51 miles was very poor.  Out a bit farther signals between WA1AC, WA4LDU, KW4DE, W2AZQ and W4DEX were fairly good with little QSB.  

On the DX paths, KGØVL was again able to copy CW from WW8II at 443 miles.  This now seems to be normal due to WW8II running close to legal limit and KGØVL's low noise location and receiving capability with the single apex loop antenna. 

At about 5 seconds into K5HFG's CW transmission, a weak but very detectable dash was heard by KP2AE and W4DEX.  These brief receptions have been occasionally reported by multiple stations.  If these brief signals are actually from the distant station the mode of propagation has not determined.
