29 April 2020
DST +3 nT

With a positive DST number  propagation was better today on the most northern path.  KGØVL and KØAWU reported good SSB copy at S-4 on the 323 miles between them.
KGØVL copied most of the 2 minute CW transmission from WW8II at 319, 444 miles.  WW8II heard enough from KGØVL to copy a series of Vs
WY3T had some copy on AB4AM and W4DEX although in the other direction no signal was heard.
K5HFG may have detected some CW from AB4AM and W4DEX.
AB4AM on SSB was weak at KW4DE, WA4LDU, W4DEX and KP2AE but his signal was very good copy on CW.
The shortest path, 51 miles between KP2AE and W4DEX, was unusually good today compared to the 103 miles from WA4LDU to W4DEX.  The 51 miles path most often is much weaker.
