09. June 2013

The 2013 Es season was not looking to good sofar. Al reported openings have been short and spotty. But today we have had a good Es day.
The first Es was reported in the morning around 09:00 GMT over the southern Mediterranean Sea. At first it looked like seatropo but the signals came well into the mainland.
Around 12:15 GMT a second opening took place on the same place and a third small one was around 16:14 GMT between southern England and Sicily.
After that the MUF rised over south-west France resulting in good ES as the reflectionzone was at a good spot and stayed there for a long time. It resulted in good Es and nearly 1600 QSO's are reported. CT1DIZ reports to have worked >250 stations, CT1ANO >100 and CS7/PDoHNL >90.
It was good to see activity from CN8 and EA9. Big question is...where are the stations from Algeria (7T-7Y )but... at least 7X5QB from JM25 was QRV and worked some Es.

Comment:
Great ES in EU, expecially for CT stns and around, but I catch just a small part of it at the beginning of the opening. ES cloud was moving over France from south to north, unfortunately I had ES into Atlantic ocean most of the time.

Comment:
As usual, CT1HZE was 1st signal coming up here, with an instantaneous short QSO.

What followed was the best opening of the past 7 years here, judged by QSO count. EA and CT, later 2 x CN. Good signal strength over the full time. Last signals around 18:55 h. IM86 and IM78 new #.

Comment:
20 Stations within 40KHz! hard to work heard much much more Stations like CN8LI with 10dB over S9. a second path to G-Land makes it difficult.
a lot of stations from EA7 are 10-30dB over and had the Antenna to north!

But finaly a good 1. Opening this year!

Comment:
Very pleased to work 7X5QB, who was a good signal on 144.300 for about 10 minutes. I suppose propagation for me was mostly into the Mediterranean Sea, but still some nice QSOs to EA5/EA6. Later on a second opening to EA1/2 around IN83, and the whole evening I had good tropo signals from EA1s in IN73!

Also heard: EA3?, EA4MS/4?, EA5FWW

Did spend a lot of time listening for new areas but to no avail. Many very strong signals on. So, nothing new but it was some fun!

Comment:
Nice to have a decent opening that lasted more than a few minutes, which allowed stations to feel more confident in gradually moving away from the initial chaos on 144.300. Nothing new worked, but nice to meet old 2M friends again. As always, the thrill is in the chase!

Great opening, nearly 90mins. Three new ones, 7X JM25 and EA's in IN70 and IN90 which are very difficult from here...impossible path via tropo but need MUF 200MHz via Es. Tnx for all qso's. Tim.

I spent a long time looking for the CN8 stations but they only peaked S2 for short periods of time. Otherwise a good openning with both parts of EA9 worked.

Comment:
Strangely patchy again here, some very loud signals, but not in for great lengths of time, once again everything was +/- 20khz of 144.300mhz.Heard on my recording several station that I hadn't worked, but it was at a time when they were weak, also heard clearly "IM63" but no call sign !Thank you to all my contacts and hope this is the real start of the Es season after last years woeful, dismal openings, thanks again everyone de David g8gxp IO93fq

Sudden opening to Spain that lasted only 6 or 7 minutes
Signals strong at S9 and much QRM from many stations on or near the frequency - even after QSY the QRM followed!

Comment:
An amazing opening here with most of the CTs so strong that they caused big splatter. CT1DIZ and CT1HZE were very,very loud,my S meter was pinned hard against the stop - it was unbelievable. 3 new locators worked as well (IN51,IN60 and IN61) making me very happy. No 7X, EA9 or CN were heard though. About 1 hour before the main opening started I copied IT9CAK/P at 59. I called him but G7RAU grabbed him first. After his QSO with Dave he faded down to 55 but was still there, in and out for 5 minutes. Despite many calls, unfortunately he did not respond and then faded completely.

I was on 4mt when worked EA6SX, that short skip was my ring bell about 2mt. I worked with antenna down and pointing North but signals were even strong. Heard but missed IN61 and IN60 that would be new #

Was watching CLX/Es forecast all day untill i had to go to band rehearsel, and watching KST via smartphone, ON6NL sent SMS, drove home 120km/h and made 6 new locators and 1 new DXCC. had problems with modulation (i heard saying) which drove stress level trough the roof. unfortunately EA9UG was strong sig but totally overcrowded and i could not work him. Very happy with all the new qso's!! 73 ON5GS Dirk

All of the Es we did not get until now, in one evening!
Big fun this hectic conditions. Great to work the long
awaited CN station, and even 2 of them! Could work all
stations heard (even some twice: sorry) except
CT2ILN and CT1EWO

1st opening in 2013. It was very comfortable to watch 144.250-144.350 in one view with SDR and decoding only by mouse click :-) Good stuff for lazy opr.

Comment:
Hrd: EA9UG in CW right on 300: Big mess, no way I could work him. I listened and called a few times on FM, but nothing heard.
Nice opening and a long time the band between 250 and 350 was filles with EAs! Nice opening!

All very short and rather weak.
I was just a bit too much north for this opening.....
But I am happy with this first Es for me in 2013 :-)

A good Es day. Spent a long time looking for the other EA9 and something from 7X. Heard many more stations than worked. EB5EOO was worked twice. He was on same QRG as CN8LI and worked him first time when I called Said. So worked him later again.

Comment:
Nice opening, lots of fading on the signal. And like allways very hectic on th band. Very nice first opening for me this year. Came by chance in the shack to see what was going on after a day away with the family. Heard panic and hectic, so ran to the amplifier and switched it on. In the meanwhile turning the antennas to the center of activity. Thanks all for the QSO and nice to meet old friends and speak to them in real instead of seeing their signals in WSJT or JT65B

All in all I had a great day.. and as I predicted.. I had a day with the family so there HAS to be an opening.. by knowing that we came home in time ;-)

My first 2m ES opening this year and a good one! I saw on my Es monitor that the muf was rising to 140MHz. 30min later 2m opened. Stations went in and out, but EA5SR, EA7RU and EA7UU had nice constant signals for nearly a hour. I was happy to work CN8LI and EA9UG. During the qso with EA9UG I had a trx problem, after a quick reset we could finish the qso.
