Comment:
in the middle of the walk with my dog I saw the red pole on my I-phone (tks EA6VQ ES-map) and hurried back to my home. On BAND no find any DX 1st 3-4min, but after one ask on 300, CALL me PA3DOL, After that I call CQ on 302, but NIL. In the meantime on 301 hrd CQ from GM0HBK (isle of Skye - io77bc 2032km) but after my call him, GM4FVM call me. We complete QSO but GM0 disappeared :( That's all what I hrd. Call CQ-s, and try find any DX on 2m next 1hour but no more lucky. 2nd side of ES fell into the North sea btwn GM-LA. 2 QSO only but enough for me because this is my 2 new DXCC on 2m #40.. :)

First phase: Again on the outer edge of the Es cloud. Signals weak and short. But anyway: First time I reached IN52 on 2m! The second phase was almost over my head so no real chance to win anything. But surprisingly I heard some G stations coming in an out. HJrd G8GXP, GI but hat no change to complete any QSOs beside with G4KUX.

Comment:
Remarkable opening with a super strength signal from EA2BV on Es on only a 936km path, and then some very strong FAI signals from eastern Eu stations.

OE3FVU made several CQ calls before he heard me calling him, the FAI signal was very "auroral" on QTF 070. SSB signals were hard to read even though they were very strong! I tried direct path (090) but the signal vanished. Delighted to read here on MMM that this was Franz' first ever FAI contact :-)

YU1EV was 55f for 30 minutes on QTF 075 degrees from here and a lifetime FAI ODX for me of 2006km, CW is the much preferred mode for FAI.

Comment:
The afternoon event was in the wrong place for me and probably put my signal down in the North African sand...
In the evening I was plauged by PD0 and DL callers on tropo who do not realise that I am deliberately ignoring their calls and that they are causing QRM to me trying to work e-s DX!

Deep QSB on most signals - strong to nil in a very short time & was very lucky to complete with the ones I did. However, one of the better openings for me, in quality, as 2 new DXCC's & 3 new squares bagged.

Comment:
Unfortunately I had to leave home just as the opening started.... but I did return just in time to make 2 x QSOs. One of these QSOs provided me with new locator, IM78. The new one certainly made up for all the QSOs I probably had missed while I was out.

Comment:
2nd Phase..
For a long time I could see that others to the north, south, east and west of me were working DX but there was absolutely nothing here. I decided that maybe I should call CQ and was immeaditaly answered by SP3YM, quickly followed by SP7TEE. More silence here then before I heard YO6OBK. YO6OBK was worked for a new locator followed later on by YO5OHY for yet another one. I could hear YO6OBK for a long time at s9 plus when there were no others stations heard here at all. Another CQ was answered by YO6TK? but this one faded just after he called me.
Some years I dont work any new locators in Es events at all...... but this year I have already managed to work 3 new ones. I am very happy.

Very lucky to catch this opening. I missed the earlier one due to being at work and I thought I had missed it all! Very happy with above QSO's though I think stations in the midlands had better signals. I had to work hard to pull stations from the noise. Thanks for the QSO's!

Comment:
Most of the Reflection areas today where either to far away, too clos, or useless as there is no activity in the atlantic. But than finally, my very first Es QSO this year with tremendously strong signal from David G8GXP. Very short and flaky stuff.

As the reflection area moved away, I had hoped that I still could use it and started calling. I was than called by G4LOH who copied my FAI signal with 57F. I gave him 53F. My very first FAI contact in 42 years of VHFDX.

I missed the beginning of the opening. Probably too close to the refl. point but still enough to catch some QSOs.
GI6ATZ was the strongest.

Cu in next one.

Was lucky today to have QRL@ home so ahd some time to QSY to the radio. Hrd an EA7 beacon for quite some time while there was no activity on the band. Called a few times but no replies till I start hearing CT1BYM, he was the first in the log,

Nice first Es opening for me this year, hope some more will follow
