A high pressure located over Belgium, France and Western Germany, is providing some tropo. However, it's not stable enough that a solid duct can be formed. Signals were in and out but some made it over 1000km.

Comment:
Nice fairly localised tropo opening in to NW Eu, some signals going over my head in the inversion.

Long periods with no activity but DX beacons always heard - some good distances worked though.

Comment:
A high pressure provided some tropo as a duct was building during the day. However, the duct was unstable so signals unstable also. Low activity.
