It really wasn’t too bad over night, at least here in Texas. The noise level improved as the night proceeded and storms dissipated. Activity is down a bit but that’s common this time of year as many people are on vacation. Geomagnetic activity was quiet with the Bz remaining near unity and solar wind velocities in the low range, averaging 380 km/s.
Phil, VE3CIQ, reports that he decoded my signal during the session and he was decoded by K4LY, WA3TTS/2, WG2XJM, and WI2XFI.
Neil, W0YSE/7 / WG2XSV, reports that he is hearing further away than he is being heard and offers these comments and statistics:
Last week I reported an intermittent problem at my station related to the antenna and ATU. The problem seemed to resolve itself over the weekend and was stable for the field day demonstration but I began observing the behavior again during the day on Tuesday. I found that a few errant stands of braid were intermittently contacting the center conductor of the coax at the feed point which is consistent with the impedance variations that I was observing. Replacing the coax and the feed location solved the problem and through the overnight session and morning CW sked there were no additional impedance excursions.
Regional and continental WSPR breakdowns follow:
There were no reports from the trans-African, trans-Atlantic, or trans-Equitorial paths.
In the Caribbean, Eden, ZF1EJ, reported my station at near CW levels during the session:
Laurence, KL7L / WE2XPQ, had no reports during this session.
Merv, K9FD/KH6 / WH2XCR, had a bit of a lean night but achieved two-way reports with VK4YB once again.
