Comment:
It was one of our best vhf results in history of Hamradio Helgoland Meeting. The Meeting takes place every two years at end of march.
Tropo opening began on saturday evening with a nice duct from southwest to northeast. Stations from G and OZ/SM worked.
On sunday morning we became contest feeling: many stations from western and central europe were logged. The conditions on 70cm were also very nice at the same time, ODX G0JLO, IO81WM, 733km.

Comment:
Some tropo here this morning. Nowhere near the scale and intensity of the opening between the 13th and 15th but nice anyway to have 2 openings in one month. No QSOs over 1000km, best was to DK2ZF/p at 912km. When I worked DK2ZF/p, Rolf was beaming into and working SP3 but he was still 59 off the back of his antenna, Later when he beamed this way he was 59+40db. As I send this report at 12:27gmt, its all gone. Very dissapointed not to be able to work DA0HEL in jo34we for a new one. Best from them was 319 on CW and no qso was possible - although PA4PS in J033 was 59. Hopefully I will work that locator another day.
