I didn't treat this as a contest rate fest but a propagation experiment. Most of my operating was about an hour or so before maximum sun cover at my QTH. Spent time calling CQ on some dead bands to see if propagation was enhanced in any way. Tried 6 meters but nothing there. 10 meters was open to W9 (spotted by a RBN) from here in GA but no one was on. On 15 meters worked some east coast, W9 and K6LA in CA. This was probably just plain E-skip. Didn't really spend much time on 20 meters since I didn't really expect anything unusual there. Only strange thing I noticed when I worked K4BAI on 20 CW, who is about 15 miles away from me, he had some pronounced AU flutter on his signal. Same when I worked him on 40 CW. The band I really noticed that had some different propagation was 40 meters. I was spotted on the RBN's with good signal reports from the west coast starting an hour before the peak at my QTH. (92% on sun covered) Worked W0A/7, KJ9C/7 and W6UM. W0UA also had a nice signal from CO. Furthest away I heard on 40 meters was W7QC, in WA, but he couldn't hear me calling him. Unfortunately I had to quit about 10 minutes before the maximum coverage at my QTH (1837z) to pickup my son at school. Did some AM DXing on the way and heard WLW in Cincinnati, which is about 600 miles from me. I wouldn't normally hear them at 2:30 PM local time. Jeff KU8E
