19 January 2023
Solar Wind Speed: 389 km/sec

Solar Wind Magnetic Fields: Bt 10 nT, Bz 2 nT

Noon 10.7cm Radio Flux: 220 sfu

17:05 K0AWU-BILL: M1 flare 10:12z and C5 flare 15:41z --- LOTS AND LOTS of Earth facing spots

CW Reports:
KG0VL-JEFF: 2 minute CW schedule: KGØVL 1710, KØAWU 1712, K5HFG 1714, W4DEX 1716

17:12 K5HFG-DON: KG0VL no detect

17:12 K0AWU-BILL: KG0VL -- START 12db, 4-12db, 2-12db, 1-20db, 10-19db at 1 MIN, 15-22db, 9-20db, 15-18db at END 3-12db VERY VERY Fast QSB

17:13 W4DEX-DEX: KG0VL CW not heard, good visual peakat middle, weak start and finish

17:14 W4DEX-DEX: K0AWU CW no signal detected

17:14 K5HFG-DON: K0AWU no detect

17:14 KG0VL-JEFF: KØAWU: 519-529 with fast qsb, peaked 539 near EOT

17:15 W4DEX-DEX: K5HFG CW no signal detected

17:16 K0AWU-BILL: K5HFG -- Nothing heard or detected with SpecLab

17:16 KG0VL-JEFF: K5HFG no copy or trace detected

17:18 K0AWU-BILL: W4DEX -- Nothing heard or detected with SpecLab

17:18 KP2AE-JOE: no DX today w4dex 599-539 some qsb fair day for locals

17:18 K5HFG-DON: W4DEX no detect

17:19 KG0VL-JEFF: W4DEX: weak trace first minute, very weak audio just past one minute, copied only a few characters.
Received at W4DEX:

SSB Reports:
17:01 W4DEX-DEX: KP2AE SSB S4 peaks, fast QSB to S1 but solid copy so far


17:05 W4DEX-DEX: KP2AE SSB now peaking S5

17:07 W4DEX-DEX: WA4LDU SSB S3 then fast dip into the noise

17:21 KG0VL-JEFF: Regional (low power) Traveler Information stations stronger than usual at this time

Jeff's observation above coincides with good skywave signal between KP2AE and W4DEX.  Local skywave peaks seem to happen when propagation on distant paths are below recent normal.
