Average session as geomagnetic activity returns to quiet levels

– Posted in: 630 Meter Daily Reports, 630 Meters

This session was less exciting than the previous.  That should not be interpreted as the session being poor, instead it was just average.  Geomagnetic activity was quiet and the Bz was pointing strongly to the North once again.  A series of M-class solar flares were observed during the late afternoon in North America from a geoeffective coronal hole that is beginning to rotate out of view.  Solar wind continues at moderate levels above 400 km/s.

Larry, W7IUV / WH2XGP, reports that he has reoriented the Flag receive antenna to the Southwest in hopes of hearing VK4YB and this will impact the reports of stations located in North America.  Larry decoded six WSPR stations and was decoded by fourteen unique stations.

Steve, VE7SL, reports that he decoded six WSPR stations and was decoded by eight unique stations.

Phil, VE3CIQ, reports a “quieter night than the previous” and he decoded WSPR signals from WG2XXM while being decoded by K4LY, SWL/K9, WG2XJM, WI2XFI, and WI2XHK.

Ken, K5DNL / WG2XXM, reports that he decoded three WSPR signals and was decoded by nineteen unique stations including nine reports from VA7BBG and 23 reports from WH2XCR.

Roger, VK4YB, reports that the noise floor is at -83 dBm during this session, slightly noisier than the previous session.

Neil, W0YSE/7 / WG2XSV, provided the following statistics and comments:
