Doing surprisingly well this morning, S4 @ 1330 with some fades to nothing.

Sunrise was at 1249 this morning here, so maybe some greyline effect still going on.
WBCQ on 5130 was about S7 at that time.

1429 - down to S2 and not getting any audio.  WBCQ also about S2 but with occasional audio fade-ups.

thanks for that refmo but are you sure that its me ?
i dont generally get that far out west, not until dark, since i take advantage of NVIS during the day and really only cover just under 1K miles of a radius around the northeast coast.
that might be WBCQ 5130Khz you are receiving since they have a much lower angle of radiation beaming southwest.
lately, they have been active when im active, not sure what thats about though.
happy holidays ! 8)
