24. May 2008

After long time waiting on the first Sporadic E on 144 MHz today it finally occured. There was high MUF since the early morning. Several QSOs have been made. MUF was high until midnight when FAI occured between I and G as well as F and HA while 3 meter was open from the border DL/SP to CT and EA. Thats always good sign for the coming day. Let's hope for more in next days...!

SP5WCK was in for just over 60 seconds, very weak (on the noise floor). No other 2m Es signals audible at this QTH. Other Gs working UA3 at the same time.
