16 February 2020
We had only three stations on today so not a lot of data.   The KGØVL / KØAWU path was weak but useable on peaks.  KGØVL did not copy CW from W4DEX hover W4DEX was able to copy enough CW from KGØVL to confirm the call.  
17:35 K0AWU-BILL: Just barely heard KG0VL call

17:39 K0AWU-BILL: KG0VL heard you call again .. in the noise

17:42 KG0VL-JEFF: No copy from W4DEX

17:43 W4DEX-DEX:  KØAWU not heard

17:43 KG0VL-JEFF: KØAWU no signal to 529 and back. Signal back up again at end

17:45 W4DEX-DEX: KG0VL, Very weak but building

17:47 KG0VL-JEFF: Jay, do you want to get in on this action?

17:48 K0AWU-BILL: KG0VL --- 0-16db above the noise. Started about 10db and faded into the noise then up and down peaking a bit after the one min mark. Into the noise and recovering to 12db at end

17:48 KG0VL-JEFF: somebody tuning

17:48 K0AWU-BILL: UP and DOWN UP and DOWN ... argh!!

17:53 KG0VL-JEFF: W4DEX, didn't hear anything

17:56 W4DEX-DEX: KG0VL now 329

17:57 W4DEX-DEX: no problem confirming KG0VL's call....but poor copy

17:58 KG0VL-JEFF: KØAWU same as earlier, peaks around 529 then to noise and quickly back up again. Just like ocean waves

17:58 K0AWU-BILL: KG0VL mostly 10-20db above the noise with occasional QSB lower even into noise at times briefly
