17. May 2009

The ES season 2009 has started. The Sporadic E developped over OE and QSO's were possible between G/F/DL/PA into SV/LZ/YU/YO.
The season might have started at around 12:00 as PA4PS reports to be called by RX1AS in SSB while in QSO in FSK. The signal was 59+ for several minutes.
Max. MUF was at 170 MHz during QSO PA4EME - YU2DX.

After a very good opening on 3m (since 14 UTC) towards I, SV and TA with very loud signals, we could see the first QSOs on 2m between G and LZ for an opening at the 2m ES saison! After as well here some signals occured but it stations was not workable in the QSB. Best DX today on 3m was Radio Istanbul (PI:3407) over 20min S9++. Lets hope for the further openings to be more fun at JO31...

Great fun. Radi, LZ2ZY was a great signal and it was nice to have a chat while we waited for activity. Surprised so few on at the start, maybe people were busy with the Sunday Roast. It was open a long time but quite selective.
muf was above 100MHz for approaching 3 hours, something just had to happen.

Gonna be a good week but please es after qrl 18:00utc so I can work some more ;)

Comment:
The 1-st sporadic on 2m here for this year. But 50Mhz was full with station and MUF is raising. The good and early start of Es sesion this year. I hope to see you all on next opening. For now let's enjoy 50Mhz and wait for 2m sporadic. 73 from LZ2RBB - Rosen
