First ES for me this year, good opening but not many stations heard.
Coming days I'm moving to summer qth where I put up 9 elements VHF and I hope to hear many stations during ES.

MUF was very high around 17UT to 18UT. JN48 was very close to the cloud over ~JN23 due to that signals have been not so strong about S5 to S8. Later ES cloud moved to west so I was able to work CT4RK. Heard him long time calling with no takers. Was my first 2m ES this year.Remember this May 2013 as one of the worst for ES seasons comparing with past years.

Very flaky opening, heard only EA4SS strong, worked him using MRP40 program as I can't work CW. Called CT4RK, but no joy; heard EA4SW working with OE1SOW, tried to copy CS7/PD0HNL for at least 30 minutes. nil. Anyway it was an Es-opening, but not one for the big book !

No distant stations heard, although we had a perfect path into north Africa. Still 1 interesting aspect was observed: Back Scatter on PA4EME. Frank is located 200 km to the SE of me, and he was beaming South and so was I! At certain times during the opening his signal would become much stronger than the standard tropo residu (which has the well known tropo back scatter tremble). The strong signal would be clear and did not get weaker while I beamed more to the west, up to to 200 degrees! Beaming towards Frank on direct path produced a Phasing sound on the signal (direct + back scatter!). This was interesting!

But how the heck do we get 7X to become QRV (again) on 2 metres....???

In JO82 4th thunderstorm today... but nice surprise, i was on edge of today ES. It was first real ES for Poland. Earlier during May contest it was only long MS :)
I heard EA3DBJ for about 5 minutes, up to 58 report, on 144.300...
Call him many times with 100W and vertical but without success.
