5 February 2020

We experienced a lot of QSB today on most paths.  At times it seemed like maybe there was some one-way propagation.  There were times when WY3T, FL, was good copy into the Carolinas but WY3T wasn't hearing the Carolina stations.  Then the reverse would happen.

KGØVL had a very good signal most of the time at W4DEX and KW4DE, both in NC.  On a bit farther path KGØVL was heard in SC at K4FI and KP2AE.

The highlight of the day's session was KØAWU, MN, copying CW from W4DEX, NC, at a distance of  1068 miles:
17:42 K0AWU-BILL: W4DEX observed and heard the entire sequence! 5-10db above the noise !!  

17:29 WY3T-TIM: W4DEX went into a deep fade when you called

17:30 KG0VL-JEFF: W4DEX calling WY3T on SSB

17:31 WY3T-TIM: K4FI went into a fade that time also but I copied his initial call

17:32 WY3T-TIM: W4DEX copied you 55 that time

17:32 K0AWU-BILL: KG0VL 55 SSB 25db above the noise

17:34 WY3T-TIM: W4DEX still 55

17:35 K0AWU-BILL: KG0VL -- deep QSB 10-25db above noise

17:38 KG0VL-JEFF: W4DEX from good copy to noise in qsb

17:39 AG5SP-CHARLIE: no copy in El Paso

17:40 K4FI-DOUG: W4DEX 5/7-8/9 Very little QSB

17:41 KG0VL-JEFF: W4DEX peaking 569 fast qsb

17:41 WY3T-TIM: W4DEX cw is 599 no qsb

17:42 K0AWU-BILL: W4DEX observed and heard the entire sequence! 5-10db above the noise !!

17:43 W4DEX-DEX: WY3T SSB from not detectable to 5x5 peaks, very fast QSB

17:43 WY3T-TIM: K4FI CW is 419 with deep qsb better towards the end

17:44 KG0VL-JEFF: K4FI 529 at the start back to noise last 30 seconds.

17:44 W4DEX-DEX: K4FI 589 slight QSB detected

17:45 AG5SP-CHARLIE: k4fi no copy

17:45 K4FI-DOUG: WY3T 4-5/3-4/9 Abruptly fas

17:46 W4DEX-DEX: WY3T 569 hardly any QSB

17:46 K4FI-DOUG: Faded way down, now coming back up, Fair amount of QSB middle and end.

17:46 KG0VL-JEFF: Did not copy WY3T

17:48 WY3T-TIM: AG5SP CW no copy

17:48 KG0VL-JEFF: Nothing heard from AG5SP

17:48 W4DEX-DEX: AG5SP not heard

17:49 K4FI-DOUG: KG0VL No copy today, still hear something way down, strange not heard before.

17:49 WY3T-TIM: K0AWU CW no copy

17:49 KG0VL-JEFF: KØAWU 539-549 at best, then qsb to the noise level

17:50 AG5SP-CHARLIE: k0awu no copy

17:51 W4DEX-DEX: K0AWU not heard

17:51 K4FI-DOUG: My noise is down from S7 to S5, Hearing KG0VL good now.

17:51 WY3T-TIM: KG0VL cw can almost tell he is in there but no copy

17:52 W4DEX-DEX: KG0VL solid 569.....came close to saying 579....very good signal

17:52 AG5SP-CHARLIE: kg0VL no copy

17:52 K0AWU-BILL: KG0VL 30-35db above the noise with a couple of short QSB fades down to 2odb and then back up

17:53 AG5SP-CHARLIE: signals not coming west

17:53 K0AWU-BILL: KG0VL 559-579

17:55: *** AG5SP is now offline ***

17:58 WY3T-TIM: W4DEX is 56 now

18:00 KG0VL-JEFF: KØAWU 5X5 SSB, W4DEX Q5 to noise level and back up again

18:05 WY3T-TIM: W4DEX still holding at 55 (335 mile path)
