All of this equals to a pretty good night in spite of an approaching noisy storm system that will likely have my station QRT for up to three days. Participation was once again very strong and while Solarham had expected an increase in the solar wind stream and high-latitude aurora, this event is either late or over stated as conditions were very good throughout the session.
It should be mentioned that Laurence, KL7L / WE2XPQ, who has been wielding power and controlling his station in Alaska remotely while in England as if he were Dr. Strangelove, indicates that the “ionic mist” that has been shrouding his operations recently appears to have lifted with two-way WSPR reports with stations in the Pacific Northwest.
In the east, WD2XSH/17 had a single report for DK7FC, who is buried somewhere at the bottom of the map below:
In the south eastern US, Doug, K4LY / WH2XZO, had another very good night on the air with 861 total reports and 21 unique spotters, with many reports at or near CW-levels.
Our two resident exotic DX stations in the Caribbean, ZF1EJ and ZF1RC, are both doing a good job keeping things stirred up in North America in spite of the current noise conditions.
Note that ZF1RC had a couple of errant spots, probably from 160-meters, and that is why two stations are cut-off on the map.
Finally, back in the Pacific, Merv, K9FD/KH6 / WH2XCR, is hearing VK3ELV again for a couple of spots. This is very good and probably the latest WSPR reports on 630-meters from Oceania.
A very late report came from Yas, JA8SCD/1, and Laurence, WE2XPQ / KL7L, on the Australian 600m email reflector. It seems Yas reported Laurence on 630-meter WSPR but due to an upload problem, the spot was not known until the screen was reviewed manually. Well done guys – I hope that the WSPRnet upload problems cease soon so important spots like this are not missed.
