PRE NET TEST on 1899 KHz 01-25-2023

WW8II transmits a 5 to 7 second 1KW CW carrier with id every 1 minute

W4DEX receives and records the signal using Spectrum Lab a 510 mile path

Start 1600ut
End 1630ut

WW8II notes:

1600ut D layer 13.00db, Solar event C3.49
1605ut D layer 15.00db, Solar event C4.03
1610ut D layer 14/00db, Solar event C3.80
1615ut D layer 13.50db, Solar event C3.64
1620ut D layer 14.50db, Solar event C3.93
1625ut D layer 15.00db, Solar event C4.14
1630ut D layer 16.00db, Solar event C5.01

NOTE FLARE : 1701ut the flare from area (3192) peaked M1.3 with a D layer absorption of 25db

NOTE also today KG0VL copied W4DEX CW 519 I had NO copy on either KG0VL or W4DEX during the regular net. This is the 2nd time that KG0VL and W4DEX had signal and I am in the middle and have heard nothing from either one.
Also W4DEX was experiencing noise from the local heavy rain storms in his area and I was experiencing antenna issue with the HEAVY snow storm in progress HEAVY WET snow on all my transmit and receive antennas.
My noise floor today was elevated by 6db all directions
