Comment:
TR openings to ON/PA are rare in JN86 because of Alps (over 2 km mountain peaks on path breaking duct). Last such opening was more than 10 years ago!

...on the way from QRL to home side I recognized several french radion stations at 3m and so I did check the 2m in advance of dinner ;-) Short QSO to F1NZC and after tuning antenna 180 degr. as well to 9A/S5/OE. Seems a great evening and sorry I have had not much more time...

No long DX here in Wales unfortunately. I was not in the opening at all except for some brief periods when a few stations at over 900km appeared. The German stations in jo50 were 59+ though. As I send this report, the band has completely closed again - I was hoping for an improvement this morning but the opposite has occurred.
