I was hearing WWV/25 several weeks ago peaking
S8 here in Central Texas... WWV/20 was inaudible! ;-)
Path 155 degrees 795 miles...
Below from the NIST.gov Web Page:
As of 2042 UTC 7 July 2017 the 25 MHz broadcast is now on a turnstile antenna with circular polarization and will remain in this configuration until after the solar eclipse on 21 Aug 2017. Signal reports are requested.
