DST +7 nT
The band was again very noisy in the southeast today but propagation must have been fair due to some signals making it over the QRN. AB4AM was copied very well by KP2AE, WA4LDU and W4DEX for the full two-minute transmission. WY3T also copied AB4AM up to 549 with a deep fade into the noise. AB4AM reported W4DEX fair copy with deep fades and WY3T at 329 with QSB. WA4LDU also copied WY3T peaking 529 with QSB to 319.
KGØVL was briefly copied by WW8II with the signal being detectable near the end of the transmission. KØAWU reported KGØVL's CW fair copy with deep QSB fades. In the other direction KGØVL reported KØAWU's CW up and down with a peak of 529 and into the noise briefly.========================================================================
