Is double phase-shifting like double-secret probation?

Sure made me wonder, since I'd been monkeying with my software. It did seem to last too long for aurora, but who knows. I agree with the phase shifting idea; it's not fair when our phase shifting gets phase shifted!

I believe that must have been the problem as I was hurrying to make a contact for my 366 last night and got it at 2359Z!!!  whew   and there were several strong signals and when I worked them even though the signals were strong I thought maybe some QSB or something because some the copy was garbled.

Just saw on http://spaceweather.com/ that the aurora was visible as far south as Arkansas.  That would explain it.

Not sure. I saw something similar to Mike, I think on both 20 and 40. Multiple signals that all seemed strong enough but no consistent decodes. I was thinking some sort of phase distortion--could have been multipath, and I think aurora does that. But it seemed to last for a few hours. 


I'm just glad that I wasn't the only one seeing it--that probably means that my station isn't broken.

Last night I had 0 (zero) signals on 30, 40, or 80. Nothing but noise at this QTH. Called CQ many times, not a single response.

I had 2-3 signals on 20, and like Mike for some reason no decode, or not enough to make a QSO.  I did struggle with one station and got him in the log. 

Today, even though I saw a station calling CQ, he apparently did not hear me.  And now, waterfall is empty.

Aurora, maybe  ?
 
On SSB it always sounds like signals are underwater.

I was on last night trying out some software changes I'd made and I could see strong signal on my waterfall, but the copy was very, very bad.  And I mean they were STRONG signals. 

Odd times.

Turned on rig this morning and heard zilch...  no not rare Z1LCH... just zero signal across the bands.   It's been years since I've so much nothingness.  Usually hear one lone signal, but there's no one.  Put out a CQ on 20m and nada.
 
All those sunspots & CME's have taken their toll on the bands.  Maybe the weekend will produce some signals. Or maybe we can blame this on those hurricanes! ?  Hopefully bands will improve by October....

Hi gang,
Well done, Art was surprised and happified to receive all you QSL and get well cards.
He still has not had the bypass surgery and they postponed it again. This time because of Hurricane Irma. He was told maybe Tuesday or Wednesday. Poor guy he has been there about 10 days already.
My xyl and I will evacuate to a hotel on the mainland tomorrow. Evacuation is not mandatory ( yet ) but smart money says get out now. I hope my station survives.
I will post a report here after she passes next week or whenever I get an opportunity.

Hi Paul,

Worked a couple of FL stations this morning, but did not see you on the waterfall.  We are leaving Utah tomorrow morning and will be heading across Northren AZ and on to Canyon de Chelly and then on to Durango, CO.

We really need to get home, but it looks like the hurricane will happen without us.  Hope all will be well in FL.

Paul:
 
Don't feel bad... over the past couple years I've missed a lot of grids . Some just went QRT before I could work them, some got QRMed to death by people with wide signal, some dufuss obliterated another rare grid by running RTTY in middle of 14070, and of course band has been know to shut down when I find a rare grid.
 
AS the Cubs have always said "wait until next year"  (and it finally happened !)

P.S.  Didn't think I was going to get a chance to work Dick this morning. Customer called and sai he wouldn't be at store until 11 which actually turned out to be 12 PM.

I currently am staying at DM48 and will be spending most of the morning in that grid.  Should be on the air by 11:00 AM EDT.  Will be traveling thru DM48, DM47, and DM37.  Setup seems to be working fine.  Most of the stations I worked today were in KY and TN. Spent a lot of time viewing the sites in Grand Mesa and Cayonlands, UT.  USA has some of the best scenery in the world.  Hope to work all who need these grids.  If you need a specific grid let me know and I will try to make it happen.  We are 2 hours behind EDT.
