Wicked lightning plagued the North Texas area overnight but it seems that stations who could discriminate noise fared well as geomagnetic conditions were quiet with a North-pointing Bz and solar wind velocities averaging 360 km/s.
Phil, VE3CIQ, operated WSPR at 75-watts TPO overnight and was decoded by SWL/K9, WA3TTS, WE2XGR/3, WG2XJM, WI2XFI, and WI2XHK. He also decoded VE3EFF, WG2XXM and WH2XNG. Phil recent made some station improvements and offers these details:
Al, K2BLA / WI2XBV, “bearly” completed his Summer antenna project when he began observing bizarre activity at his station. He provides the following details and a solutions that might help others in the future:
Rick, W7RNB / WI2XJQ, operated his CW beacon during the session and was reported by Toby, VE7CNF, at RST 579 at 0450z.
Ken, K5DNL / WG2XXM, reports a noisy night in Oklahoma, decoding two WSPR stations and being decoded by by 21 unique stations. He had fourteen reports from WH2XCR at a distance of 6007 km.
Steve, VE7SL, reports that he decoded five WSPR stations and was decoded by eight unique stations with eight decodes from WH2XCR. Steve notes,”I seem to be hearing him abt 6 db btr than he hears me. Not sure what his TPO is though.”
Neil, W0YSE/7 / WG2XSV, was surprised by the amount of activity on the fourth of July and provided these statistics:
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 WG2XXM during the session:
Laurence, KL7L / WE2XPQ, reported four stations during the session:
Merv, K9FD/KH6 / WH2XCR, reported stations West of the Mississippi in North America plus two-way reports with VK4YB. He also decoded VK3ELV and was decoded by VK2XGJ:
