29 January 2020

Activity was down and overall signals were not very good except for one path.  K5HFG in Mississippi was briefly the much better CW copy than usual at W4DEX in North Carolina.  As the signal faded about halfway through the usual two-minute transmission there seemed to be some distortion maybe due to multipath ionospheric reflectins.  There hardly enough signal strength to know for sure.  Recording of K5HFG on CW at the link below:


17:29 K0AWU-BILL: 18db signal tuning

17:33 W4DEX-DEX: K4FI, KP2AE 59

17:33 WB4WCJ-PAUL: cpy k4fi

17:35 K4FI-DOUG: WB4WCJ 5x9

17:36 KG0VL-JEFF: Pretty quiet up here

17:38 K5HFG: Very quiet here S3 SSB noise


17:39 K0AWU-BILL: KG0VL 10-20db above noise measured QSB

17:41 WB4WCJ-PAUL: cw w4dex v v weak

17:41 K4FI-DOUG: W4DEX 589

17:42 W4DEX-DEX: K5HFG 549 initially, slow fade into the noise after 1st min of the 2 min transmission

17:43 K4FI-DOUG: No copy on K5HFG

17:43 K5HFG: W4DEX on scope no copy, hear just barely in the noise. Can make out his call but still no copy

17:44 KG0VL-JEFF: No copy on W4DEX. First time since early last fall that has happened.
          (W4DEX transmitting 400 watts on multiband 120 degree angle semi inverted V instead 700 watts on large inverted L)

17:45 KG0VL-JEFF: K5HFG 419 at best, peaking near the end of the sequence

17:46 WB4WCJ-PAUL: SSB noise s8 k4fi s9 CW k4fi good

17:46 K5HFG: K4FI no copy

17:46 KG0VL-JEFF: Did not copy K4FI

17:46 K4FI-DOUG: no copy on K0AWU

17:47 KG0VL-JEFF: KØAWU peaking 549 with qsb

17:48 K5HFG: K0AWU no copy

17:48 W4DEX-DEX: K4FI 599

17:49 K4FI-DOUG: No copy on KG0VL, not even way down in noise.

17:50 K5HFG: KG0VL no copy

17:50 W4DEX-DEX: KG0VL 539 initially, down to 329 then back up to 539.....both K5HFG and KG0VL CW sounds a bit distorted. Will post recording

17:51 K0AWU-BILL: KG0VL 10-25db above noise Strong at the beginning then down to 15db or so built again to 25db about 15sec from the end and then faded

17:52 K0AWU-BILL: KG0VL 529 to 559 clean note T9

18:00 KG0VL-JEFF: KØAWU still 54 on ssb, deep qsb
