DST -1 nT

Propagation was just slightly better today.  WW8II on CW was just strong enough on peaks for complete call sign copy at KGØVL and W4DEX.  In the other direction, WW8II detected signals but had no copy.   The most northern path, KGØVL / KØAWU, is still holding up good enough for quick SSB contacts.  

16:27 K0AWU-BILL: 37deg clear and windy. Noise level is UP today S5-6 SSB S3-4 CW --- Inverted Vee

16:27 KG0VL-JEFF: Very weak ssb now, appears to be from my East

16:28 W4DEX-DEX: QRN getting more noticeable now

16:29 KG0VL-JEFF: Disregard, voice is 2nd harmonic up on 1.900 from AM 950 KOEL

16:29 K0AWU-BILL: Noise blanker seems quite effective with my new noise

16:31 WW8II-BRUCE: 62 degrees F and BRIGHT SUN

16:31 K0AWU-BILL: KG0VL 54 55 on SSB in short test

16:31 K5HFG: 57F and rain again

16:32 WW8II-BRUCE: noise level here today with SAL antenna N.E. -127db S.E. -126db S.W. -126db N.W. -129db and the inverted V -124db

16:33 K0AWU-BILL: Noise level with NB is S4 SSB and S1 CW

16:35 W4DEX-DEX: K4FI S9 and stable so far

16:36 WW8II-BRUCE: hearing NO CRASHES but see massive lightning Dallas to East TX to LA upper N central MS through center of AL and all of GA from atlanta south to Albony

16:37 K5HFG: Mucho static here

16:37 WW8II-BRUCE: 2 min CW WW8II 1640 - W4DEX 1642 - K4FI 1644 - K5HFG 1646 - K0AWU 1648 - KG0VL 1650


16:42 K4FI-DOUG: WW8II No copy

16:42 K5HFG: WW8II no copy

16:42 K0AWU-BILL: WW8II at start nil, just detected lst 15sec, too weak to measure

16:43 KG0VL-JEFF: WW8II just above detection level. Was able to get callsign twice around 1 minute mark, otherwise too weak to copy

16:43 K4FI-DOUG: W4DEX 5 x 7/8 some QSB

16:44 K5HFG: W4DEX no copy

16:45 WW8II-BRUCE: W4DEX start nil 1 min 20 sec detect 1 min 40 sec 219 2 min end detect only

16:45 W4DEX-DEX: WW8II initially 329 then quick fade into the noise, coming back up at 60 sec...back into the noise at eot

16:45 W4DEX-DEX: K4FI 599 with a few quick fades to 559

16:46 WW8II-BRUCE: K4FI nil no detect

16:46 K5HFG: K4FI no copy

16:47 K4FI-DOUG: K5HFG NO Copy

16:47 K0AWU-BILL: W4DEX - K4FI - K5HFG no copy or detection

16:48 WW8II-BRUCE: K5HFG no copy no detect

16:48 KG0VL-JEFF: No copy from W4DEX, K4FI or K5HFG

16:49 K4FI-DOUG: K0AWU No Copy

16:49 KG0VL-JEFF: KØAWU began 539, down to 519 at midpoint, nearly lost at 1.30, now climbing back up to 519-529

16:50 WW8II-BRUCE: K0AWU no copy no detect

16:50 K5HFG: K0AWU no copy

16:51 K4FI-DOUG: KG0VL No Copy

16:51 W4DEX-DEX: Nil on K5HFG, K0AWU and KG0VL

16:52 K0AWU-BILL: KG0VL start 23db, 30sec 23db, 45sec 20db, 1min 20db, 1min 30sec 28db, end 32db

16:52 K5HFG: KG0VL no copy

16:52 WW8II-BRUCE: KG0VL well it has happened 10 sec detect only again 1 min 8 sec detect only no copy



16:54 WW8II-BRUCE: copying log now
