Sporadic E.
Today's ES shows the DX-potential of FT8-mode. However, the use of the right calling periods (eg. like meteorscatter) and maybe add a frequency you will listen and reply to your CQ will increase your succes.

Comment:
First I was on FT8 there was the totally chaos. Nearby stations as a HB9 was constantly calling wrong in 1.period qrming all. So weaker signals could not be read. Please read the rules who's in 1. and in 2. period and we all will have fun.
Later I changed calling FT8 in SPLIT that worked.
CN8LI was loud here in SSB up to 59 and it was nice to hear a human voice. Guys use in a opening more SSB please !

Hrd EA8DBM and EA8CXN on FT8 in the 1st Opening around 14:00 UT. But the ES Tropo mix was too unstable to get a complete QSO. What a pity. Many local QRM here 1st period.

Starting seeing 'pings' from EA on FT8 when they were working DL then the reflection moved. So very strong EA7s at times but I was only looking for 8......

Comment:
Also heard EA7HLB (IM76) on SSB at 1410 58 ssb . Pity I had to use FT8 to work the EA8 - hopefully I can use SSB next time. The EA8 was a new country, new continent and new locator for me at my new QTH so quite happy.

HI all,
again I was only FT8 because I was with remote station control.
EA8DBM is my ODX overall in 2m no EME !
Just a note : my friend Rino IV3NBD from JN65rt contact EA8DBM in FT8 (+4db) with 50W and collinear antenna, very impressive !

Lost first part of the opening (and likely EA8...) while coming back home from QRL. Fast and deep QSB, but opening lasted till 16:40 UT here, so enough for managing some QSO.
