Worked 40 meter band on Feb 22 2020, calling CQ on 7.25 Mhz with IC-746PRO using multiband antenna from Hagelbarger lookout in Fairbanks. Made contact at 12:16 AKST with KL7EDK, who reported that my signal was “not coming in strong” but said I was S-5. Finished calling CQ about 45 minutes later but did not make any other contacts.
Tuning around the bands, I found what sounded like some kind of data transmission at 14.434.79 Mhz.
Eielson Ionosonde for 12:15 AKST showed almost no data except a blip of E-layer.
