Radio: it's not just a hobby, it's a way of life

Current Operating Frequency and Mode

OFF AIR but returning after dark on Saturday night

Average session with calm geomagnetic conditions and lots of noisy storms in the south central US

– Posted in: 630 Meter Daily Reports, 630 Meters

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:
