Propagation seems to have improved today, at least on the path between South Carolina and Michigan-Iowa. KGØVL made a complete SSB exchange with K4FI, 838 miles. WW8II was also hearing K4FI. Both KGØVL and WW8II had partial copy on WB4WCJ. That's 932 miles from KGØVL!
W2AZQ reported: "hearing Jeff KG0VL today 569 to 579 1735-1737 including no QSB 1736-1737z"
A solar EUV wave has been crossing the solar disk for the past week and is about to disappear as the sun rotates. Perhaps this has been responsible for the poorer conditions than we experienced during early December. See the link below:
From this link the EUV wave can be seen crossing the sun by selecting the date:
17:29 KG0VL-JEFF: Hearing weak SSB now
17:30 WW8II-BRUCE: iI am also hearing weak SSB
17:32 WW8II-BRUCE: I AM NOW HEARING SSB LOUDER NOT SURE WHO
17:35 WW8II-BRUCE: KG0VL CW 519 - 529 AT BEST
17:36 WW8II-BRUCE: KG0VL 419 ON THE INVERTED V ANTENNA
17:36 WW8II-BRUCE: KG0VL 529 ON THE SAL ANTENNA
17:37 K5HFG: copy KG0VL @1736 RST 529
17:37 WW8II-BRUCE: K5HFG CAN DETECT BUT NO COPY
17:38 KG0VL-JEFF: K5HFG 529 but signal is up and down

17:42 K4FI-DOUG: WW8II is fairly strong and steady S4 - S5
17:42 K4FI-DOUG: solid copy on WW8II very little QSB
17:43 KG0VL-JEFF: WW8II builds to 569 then fades back to the noise.
17:43 K5HFG: copy WW8II 319 now below the noise
17:44 KG0VL-JEFF: Just heard K4FI call Bruce on SSB with a good signal.
17:47 K5HFG: can detect SSB but no copy

17:47 KG0VL-JEFF: Just talked to K4FI on SSB 52
17:47 WW8II-BRUCE: I HEAR SSB IN THE NOISE BUT MY NOISE IS AT LEAST 10DB MORE THAN USUAL
17:48 KG0VL-JEFF: Was also hearing WB4WCJ in QSO with K4FI
17:50 KG0VL-JEFF: WW8II now very weak on SSB
17:50 WW8II-BRUCE: KG0VL SSB RIGHT AT THE NOISE
17:51 KG0VL-JEFF: Still hearing Doug and Paul on SSB
17:52 KG0VL-JEFF: K4FI-KGØVL 838 miles
17:53 WW8II-BRUCE: HEARING KG0VL IN THE NOISE AND MY NOISE IS INCREASING IT IS ALL STATIC CANNOT BLOCK IT WITH THE NB..
