    Unusual conditions on 160 meters (160 meters *is* one of the lowbands - right?) at the moment - getting spots to the east at near 2,000 km and also to the NE at just over 1,000 km

    Most recent spot 16 min after 4 PM ... look how the signal started about 2:18 PM and has settled to where it is now (not really settled, but evened out some):

    I don't think I have seen 160m band this active at 4:30PM local CST before:

    A few minutes before 5 PM local CST ... 160m band is looking like it usually does at 7 to 8 PM

    Agreed - from the east coast it's getting crazy in the mornings. Jim, you're one of the long ones at 1500 miles !
    Moved down to 2200 because 160 was like a traffic jam. :eek:
