30 January 2020
We saw a significant improvement in propagation today over what we had yesterday.   Signals were good most of the time but had some occasional deep fades.  The shortest path,  KP2AE / W4DEX, 51 miles, showed the most QSB.  The KGØVL / KØAWU path was better with KØAWU reporting KGØVL 579 36db above the noise.  K5HFG, KGØVL and WY3T all copied on CW at W4DEX.  WY3T at W4DEX may have been close to the strongest heard so far for that station.  

17:34 WY3T-TIM: Idle noise today is S4 SSB and S1-2 on CW

17:35 WB4WCJ-PAUL: noise s8 with a new one at s9 noise takes out SSB w4dex weak

17:36 K5HFG: copy KG0VL SSB just above the noise. Do not hear W4DEX

17:36 KG0VL-JEFF: W4DEX right at the noise level on SSB

17:36 W4DEX-DEX: WY3T S3

17:37 W4DEX-DEX: WB4WCJ S3

17:37 W4DCL-CARROLL: KP2AE in noise, no copy SSB

17:37 W4DEX-DEX: KP2AE S5 with QSB

17:37 W4DEX-DEX: W4DCL S5

17:37 W4DCL-CARROLL: WY3T no copy SSB

17:38 W4DCL-CARROLL: WB4WCJ no copy SSB

17:39 K5HFG: Hear some short bursts of SSB

17:39 WY3T-TIM: W4DEX now in the noise

17:40 W4DCL-CARROLL: W4DEX 599 copy CW

17:41 KG0VL-JEFF: W4DEX 549 steady for the duration

17:42 WY3T-TIM: W4DEX CW is 589 slight QSB once

17:42 K5HFG: W4DEX copy W4DEX 318 entire Tx

17:42 W4DEX-DEX: QSB on all heard so far

17:43 W4DCL-CARROLL: K5HFG no copy on CW

17:43 W4DEX-DEX: K5HFG CW initially 439...fade into noise after 1 min....coming back up at end of transmission

17:44 KG0VL-JEFF: K5HFG just above noise, peaked at midpoint 539

17:45 W4DCL-CARROLL: WY3T right at noise floor can hear but no copy on CW

17:46 K5HFG: WY3T no copy no detection

17:46 W4DEX-DEX: WY4T nice 579 at start, slow QSB down to 539 at end

17:47 K0AWU-BILL: KG0VL 579 36db above the noise steady first min

17:47 WY3T-TIM: K5HFG no copy CW

17:47 WB4WCJ-PAUL: CW w4dex wy3t?

17:48 W4DCL-CARROLL: KG0VL just at noise floor but no copy on CW

17:48 W4DEX-DEX: KG0VL Initially 559 with a slight slow fade then back up to 559 at end

17:48 K5HFG: KG0VL 519/529 signal very loud entire Tx

17:48 KG0VL-JEFF: Did not copy WY3T

17:48 KP2AE-JOE: wy3t 41n at best no cpy on kg0vl cw but herd his ssb

17:48 K0AWU-BILL: KG0VL 25-33db above noise last min 569

17:49 WY3T-TIM: KG0VL can tell he was in there but no decode of characters

17:50 W4DEX-DEX: K0AWU not heard

17:50 KG0VL-JEFF: KØAWU 559, peaking 270 due West

17:50 K5HFG: K0AWU no copy no detection

17:51 W4DCL-CARROLL: K0AWU no detection

17:52 W4DCL-CARROLL: Thank you Dex! I have room for improvement!

17:54 KG0VL-JEFF: W4DEX strongest he's been all day now on ssb

17:55 W4DEX-DEX: WY3T very good SSB copy today

17:56 W4DEX-DEX: WB4WCJ SSB 54

17:59 WY3T-TIM: W4DEX on SSB is at 56 and some QSB and WB4WCJ was 57

18:02 K0AWU-BILL: KG0VL 54-55 SSB best signals since Jan 27th

18:03 KG0VL-JEFF: Good ssb signal from KØAWU 5X5

18:04 KG0VL-JEFF: W4DEX still in on SSB

18:07 WB4WCJ-PAUL: copy dex some now


18:08 W4DEX-DEX: KG0VL SSB 54
