Tropo over the Atlantic Ocean. Please note that stations from the Canarian Islands were reported to be heard in JO02. This might mean that stations on the Belgian and Dutch coast could have had a chance, however a small one, to hear/work EA8!!

Comment:
The last time I worked EA8 on tropo was in 1998. It is unusual for the sea duct to extend so far inland (350Km) to my QTH. I heard stations in GW and the South & West of the UK having a great time throughout the evening working several EA8's, which were inaudible to me. At around 2145z I eventually began hearing very weak signals from Fernando who later peaked at 539 after our QSO. The CS3 beacon was patchy and in deep QSB but peaked 549 for some minutes. It was a first from this sea level QTH. Unfortunately it was very late and I could not hear or see any activity reported. 73, David

Comment:
Remarkable day on 2m, in the evening most EA8 stations were fully endstop strength. Great to work D44TD again and the CU3EQ qso via Maderia was amazing! (audios will be on my web site soon) Tim.

Comment:
My take off to the SW is very poor and to work EA8 from my home QTH is usually very difficult. Tonight conditions were quite exceptional and the EA8s were in here for many hours. Amazing, considering that I have to beam into rising ground directly behind my aerial.
