15.42 G4FUF reports reception of CS3BTM/B in IM12OR

At 15:42 G4FUF reported the reception of the CS3BTM/B beacon in IM12OP. It seems the beacon is a bit higher in frequency and has a 200 Hz chirp while keying.
Around 17:30 the band opened for a short time between CT1HZE and several stations in southern UK. Endstop signals reported but lasting only for a short time.

For those wondering about the blue lines on the map: red lines will indicate QSO's reported to MMMonVHF and visible in the listed logs and blue lines are representing QSO data taken from DXC.

Comment:
Only one contact via Sporadic E, no other active CT stations heard.
I QSY'd up from 6m when saw MUF at ~120 MHz over the Bay of Biscay. The 4m band was also very busy with strong CT stations reported by local stations. The 144MHz opening only lasted ~10mins here.

GW8JLY reported much stronger signals (59++) from Joe.

CT1HZE also worked G4RRA (IO80BS), GW8JLY (IO81JM), GW7SMV (IO81), G7RAU (IO90IR).

Log:
When CT1HZE was running a few QSOs into G and GW around 17:30 z, I checked CS3BTM several times (144.401). At around 17:35 z I heard a weak (529) but stable carrier, and I wondered whether it was a beacon or a local birdy. I tuned away, but when I returned 30 s later I could hear it keying and slipping away into the noise. The signal was too weak at that time to decode the call, but it seems likely that it was CS3BTM.
At the time there was good tropo to the north, hence the path may have consisted out of a single hop Es + tropo.
Nothing else was heard.
