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

However, I have the not-heard timeout & delete on the special events server map at
set to over 10 hours, so that you have a better chance to see past history,
especially track lines for mobiles.
