    Middle East coming in 30 over S9! Europe and parts of Asia S9 plus plus!! A and K indexes down fairly low with the SFI at 123. I haven't heard 20 meters open like this in some time. Great signals!!

    Nothing heard here on the West Coast. Band is dead except for stateside here.
    Oh wait, I heard a ZL

    We are suppose to be getting two CMEs back to back and a particle stream to boot.
    I hope it lasts through the weekend.

    Conditions are weird tonight. A couple times in mid-QSO the other guy just disappeared -- gone!

    I switched to digital and, according to reverse beacon, folks are hearing me but no one is responding to my CQ. Oh well.

    Several partial QSOs too on digital -- again the other station just disappears. I would think it's my receiver but other signals are still strong. And then someone starts calling practically on top of me as if they cannot hear me. But the reverse beacons show very good reports for my station from different areas.
    I finally completed two QSOs after 18 minutes. Very strange conditions on 20m tonight.

    Ditto,

    Condx in California weren't great last night. Heard plenty of stateside stations, few DX. Just the opposite of the night previous, when 20 CW was full of Europeans, mostly Russian and Baltic.

    The "gone" bits are the holes in the ionosphere, bit difficult for anyone living on the left side of the US, best place is on the right side for Europe. Getting to Europe from FL is easy, my difficulty is getting into the parts of Siberia where the sun don't shine and they have no ionosphere

    Propogation is only working one way for me - I can hear stations but they can't hear me tonight. Ah well. Gonna play on JT65 for a while - there are still signals visible on 10 meters this late so I'll throw some CQ's out and see what I can snag, if anything.

    Neil we had some storms tonight also. I had to lower the tower but put it back up a bit ago. Really nice conditions now, but one never knows. I'm lowering the tower now in preparation for flying out in the morning to Dayton. I hate leaving the thing up . . . . just never know.
