Today a remarkable event took place. Just after 16.00 UTC a mid winter Sporadic E event took place. F4EZJ (JN05) noticed OH1CP (KP10. After ringing alarmbells several QSO's were made using a scatterpoint around JO42.
As this is a rare event, we ask you that, if you made some contacts too within the timeframe and midpoint at JO41, to send a report so it can be investigated to be mid-winter ES.

Comment:
I was on the way home - driving my car... Just SWL report this time.
During that ES, most of UK stations beam probably to South due tropo ducting G-D4/EA
Interesting if it was MS or Solar event?
