Telegrapher's blog

2/16/09Z I see stations all over on the map and i was heard by WB2YUN out in the Pacific. Also other stations around the states. However, i am not hearing nor seeing any stations on the screen. I know the radio is working because i see RTTY signals on there but not one, Not one WSPR station. Arizona is truly in the sink hole for propagation.

I can't believe it. Looking at the map. All that activity and i'm not even hearing anyone "beaconing". Yes i have a 30 meter dipole up and it works well. I hear the Propnet folks and other signals but i'm not getting anything with WSPR or WSJT 6. An occasional "funny" catch and i see the signals on WSJT 6. Only thing i get with that is an occasional "73", RRR or RO. Can propagation be that bad? In the past months i've collected pages of spots on WSJT 6, now i haven't spotted anything at all. Like waiting for good propagation to come around, i may not have any hair left by then.
