Arrrrgh!!!!!      Almost the instant I hit "Send" on the previous message, 
ANOTHER massive solar X-Ray flare erupted and almost complete shut down the 30 
meter band, killing RX of the two PSK63 stations.

See the solar X-ray activity graph here:

If a station isn't heard for 63 mins, it is automatically deleted from the the 
main 30M All-North-America map at

However, I have the not-heard  timeout & delete on the special events server map at

.    <http://wa8lmf.dyndns.org:14437>

  set to over 10 hours, so that you have a better chance to see past history, 
especially track lines for mobiles.
