    We consider stochastic almost output synchronization for time-varying directed networks of nonidentical and non-introspective (i.e., agents have no access to their own states or outputs) agents under external stochastic disturbances. The network experiences switches at unknown moments in time without chattering. A purely decentralized (i.e., the additional communication channel among agents is dispensed) time-invariant protocol based on a low- and high-gain method is designed for each agent to achieve stochastic almost output synchronization, while reducing the impact of stochastic disturbances.Moreover, we extend the problem to the case where stochastic disturbances can have nonzero mean or other disturbances are present with known frequencies. Another purely decentralized protocol is designed to completely reject the impact of disturbances with known frequencies on the synchronization error.
