On 500kHz   only 1 USA report from EU  ....me ;-) 2011-02-27 05:18  WD2XSH/7   0.495969   -27   0   EM31js   20   PA0O   JO33hg   7830   39 Only 1  decode  against 16 previous nights 160m yesterday evening and night   not a single DX over 3000! much later  some USA decodes I have never seen such poor propagation since i have been on with WSPR 80m the same in the top DX list   no EU  present  no VK to EU  One time i tried to make a sort of DX-index for JO33 I select 100 records descending on distance over 24hours  and  count  the DX>4000 Most time my Index is well above 50  But now it was zero on 160 and 80m until long after  midnight very unusual.   2011-02-27 06:08   PA0O   3.594140   -16   0   JO33hg   5   WB8HWF   EN80sc   6497  was the best  DX  decoded   normally   VK6  or VK7DIK    the best DX decode  in EU was W to south DL The other EU decodes in the list are erroneous. The best band was 28MHz  with VK6TQ and VK6GOS  15m also poor The conclusio
