Had worked EA1FDI IN53tf at 19:21 (1655km, definitely TROPO)
and was surprised when I heard EI2IP with a booming Es signal
only 18 minutes later and at this time of the day on a 9th of August...

Comment:
Lots calling but I couldn't go through the DX quick enough, great to work two new DXCC, SP and OE on 144Mhz. Was watching bands all day, as 70MHz was wide open to G and LX. My first Es for 2008. And even sweeter with only 50watts. Keep listening towards IO61.

Work EB8AYA with very good signal on 144 but nothing on 432, so I suppose that's ES. After at 19:40, I found the OZ7IGY/B and go calling. All ES sign was very QSB and not so strong but shorted to 900km! Also some FAI to 70° at the same time. 73's to all

Heard also EI8IQ and EI4EY in the crowd.
Very late opening but (as usual this year) again quite short.
Seems 2m-ES for hours isnt' possible anymore in HB9 :-(

So let's enjoy the perseids instead :-)
Good reflections!
