Sunday Listening Summary
« on: August 05, 2018, 2301 UTC »
It was a good day here for 22 meter activity. The following stns were heard 8/5/2018:

GNK:  Heard GNK from about 1540 to about 1640Z...part of the time listening from     the dinner table. Sig generally maxing out at about RST 339 and down to barely preceptable or into the noise. Fade ups generally 3-4 ID heard and down for about  15sec or so then back up to the 339 for a few IDs. Interesting to hear the QSB cycle.

PLM:  Could just barely hear PLM from 1737-1755Z. Sigs were mostly at the noise threshold, but with a few IDs just above the noise floor to positively identify....mostly RST 229 or less up to 339 a few times. Long dash after ID.

WV:  Copied WV from 1725-1732Z. Sigs generally ranging from RST 229 to maybe pushing a 449, but with occasional fade-ups to 559 or about an S6 (ambient noise floor at about an S2). First time I have heard WV. His dit/dah marker good for attracting attention plus making S-meter readings.

To cap off the day, I received a email report of WAS from VA3SC, Steve, in Ont.

Excellent radio day...73 de Bill K4JYS/WAS
