Also hrd RX6BN and RA6C with 5/5 but couldnīt get through. After one hour break the MUF rises again for a few minutes to North-East. No Stations in CW and FM in JN58WH heard, except RA3EL (SSB).

I was just too late this sunday morning... Some stations heard but could only work one because signals were already very weak. This was opening #4 for me this year.

Clouds too far away so did not expect anything to happen when suddenly Kadri called CQ on .300 on a different cloud. :-) Nice to catch him for the first time on 2 m. He was audible for about 10 minutes, mostly at > s9 signal strength. He worked 2 other JO73 locals. Seemed very localized. Anyway, good catch! ;-)

Short and weak in JN59.

Heard RX6BN first in CW than after loud in SSB. Typical opening with signals up/down and crowed .300 !

Here are some live audio that I recorded during the ES:

Comment:
Late season opening caught me by surprise as looking for Perseids MS. UW8SM big signal but others in IO81 to the south-west of me had smaller signals, once again the opening was very localised. With this and other 2m Es inc TA1D on 8th July, 2015 has been one of the very best 2m Es seasons for me, after 2014 which was so poor.

Comment:
Quite a critical opening here: mostly weak signals, deep and fast fading. Combined with my bad takeoff to East direction, that resulted in a frustrating experience: 4 stns heard, no QSO :-(
