Certainly not an expert, but my own anomaly occured a couple weeks ago when
I hit the shack to entertain my insomnia late one night. I turned the rig
on and was greeted by the quietest band noise I've heard in my 6 years on
160m. A soft white noise almost. I immediately thought that something was
wrong, but as I tuned around I could hear signals like I've NEVER heard
before. I tried for a couple EU stations but no joy. Within 5 minutes, the
band noise was back up to the normal S9 and the signals were gone. I have
no idea what I experienced that night. It was Feb. 4 at 0650z.
