IMPORTANT REMINDER: Neither 630-meters nor 2200-meters are open to amateurs in the US yet. That includes stations using fake or pirated call signs. Please continue to be patient and let the FCC finish their processes. UPDATED: Click here to view the proposed “considerate operators” frequency usage guide for 630-meters under Part-97 rules that was developed with the input of active band users.

There was considerably more storm activity around North America during this session, most notably in the Desert Southwest, Southeast and mid-Atlantic region.  Activity flared up just to the North of me in the Dallas area this morning.  The Gulf remains very active as a tropical storm approaches the Texas / Louisiana coast.  The storm is expected to reach hurricane strength which will increase storm chances here further through the weekend.  Another storm system is showing life in Alberta, Canada.

Geomagnetic conditions peaked at G1 storm levels again during the session. The Bz is pointing slightly to the South this morning and solar wind velocities are averaging near 392 km/s.  DST values are currently negative but may be trending very slowly toward the centerline.

 

 

 

 

Doug, K4LY / WH2XZO, reported that “High noise from t-storms eastern Carolinas limited unique decodes to 7 and 27 decoding WH2XZO.”

Ernie, KC4SIT / WI2XQU, reported that he “…provided decodes to 6 stations, the most distant being WH2XXP at 2748 km. I was decoded by 24 stations with VA2WW being the most distant at 1517 km. Only 5 of these stations exceeded 1000 km. Interestingly KA9CFD provided two decodes at a SNR of -31. He is 941 km distant. His best decode was a -24.  A good night but I would like to see more distance, more often.”

Rick, W7RNB / WI2XJQ, provided reports for seven WSPR stations and he received reports from seventeen unique stations.
