A new ES day has started. 50 MHz was already open in the early morning with signal all around Europe. At 07.10 SP2MKO reported the band to be open to Spain and worked 2 stations. After that more contacts are made with the reflection area above the line JN16, JN27 and JN36.
First spots are taken from CLX and are blue. Reported QSO's will be shown in red.

Hi all, Heard also KN24, KN05 and KN4?. I think that the QSO with I4RHP/7 was on FAI because I receive him better at 80 (direct path 100) with weak signal and comparatively stable during 5 minutes. 73's

The first 144MHz Sp-E at this QTH in 2008 and I've been listening very hard! Only using 1 x 9-element at the moment to make way for the 2 x 7-element DK7ZB's on 70MHz! Usually use 4 x Vargardas.

Comment:
I4RHP/7 was audible for all of the opening,activity seemed to be pretty low.At times he was 59++ and no others could be heard,lots of Cqs provided no contacts.......all QSOs were worked by replying to calls.
I looked about on FM but heard nothing

A frustrating day for me!
During the morning opening, I heard nothing at all until I4RHP/7 came up very strongly for a few seconds, he got my callsign and then instantly dived into noise!
The evening opening was obliterated by QRM on 144.300 and both contacts were lost.
Such is life!
