    Listening to SSB QSOs on 20 and they indeed sound distorted and fluttery - like 6m when it opens to the East Coast from here.

    FT8 on 15 and 20 is very distorted sounding.

    Weird stuff

    10m now, some strong signals, including DX and some paths in the US. We have very high flux level due to the solar storms. After blackouts, sometimes the best conditions since solar flux is so high and 10m less affected. Odd 10m seems less affected from some locations than 6m in their contest.

    Had a 40M CW qso just a little while back. Signals ok but a lot of deep fades to nothingness at times. Saturday morning here so will be interesting to see how things pan out.

    Higher bands seem dead.

    The HP30 index now has us at Most Severe G5 level or KP of over 9 we have now hit 11 but there is no G6 off the scales. The HP30 looks back 30 minutes vs the more known KP which look back 3 hours.

    Yet I am hearing strong signals from my NY remote on 40m nets from much of the US.

    Check out WWV at 10.000 MHz - very warbly and distorted at times.

    Lol. Trying to explain this to wife who has never known anything or cared to know about such. 30 yr old son knows almost less. He is convinced it will cause global disastrophe and the gummint is lying about it. ROFLMDAO.

    Disclaimer: If you had what I know about it in yer eyes it wouldn’t hurt. Heh heh

    Gonna throw up a wire and have a listen on the bottom of 40.
