I’ve been QRT waiting out a storm system that continues to rage onward in the south central US. Hopefully by sometime on Sunday weather conditions will approve. In the mean time I will do my best to characterize what is going on with other stations.
Participation was strong during the session in spite of absent transmitting stations. Conditions were reported by Doug, WH2XZO / K4LY, to be some of the strongest that he has observed this season. Doug was soliciting CW QSO’s in the ON4KST logger/chat.
Its very nice to see FR5ZX on Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean monitoring. I wish him all success at reporting stations on 630-meters and hope that he can transmit soon!
In the east, W1TAG/1 and WD2XSH/17 both reported DK7FC:
In the Pacific, WH2XCR reports that a storm coming ashore in Mexico was creating a significant amount of noise for him and activity was low. He did not have any JA or VK spots to report.
In Alaska, Laurence only reported hearing WH2XGP in Washington state.
In Oceania, VK3ELV was reported by a Japanese SWL, TNUKJPM:
Solarham reports that a glancing blow from a CME should be arriving sometime on the 24th and will result in a kp index of 5. Perhaps this will be only a glancing blow and conditions won’t be terribly impacted.
