Comment:
After a few calls in ssb mode, there was no answer, I switched to ft8 mode. Fortunately, I made 3 QSO s. These are my first QSOs with SV stations.
Thank you very much for the QSO s.,73!

*** ALL I worked on SSB mode***
Nice (to)day ....
several times in day I heard G4LOH,
I have lucky with several short opening,
10 min to G x3 qsos and 1 x EI
2 min to G when I ask for any DX on 300,
then I work 5 QSOs, then ES stoped
after half hour I heard G4LOH again but no another stations, but
then I heard SM station, When I search band, I work 2 SM station only,
no answer on my CQ, but station SM4ONW was heard abt 10min.
No lucky for open to LA or OH although it was close ;)
Also it was close to work SV9CVY about 16:20z but he work
locJN86>JN89+JO80, my JN85 it was be to close to ES cloud.
Pity, it was not SV5 stations today on 2m.
TKS all for QSO, others >CUL next days I hope.
Good ES season for now. 73

Loud, but also only short. Saw LY2WR and EU6FN with weak signals on FT8 some minutes later. As the high MUF areas were right over my head for the most time, i was active on 6 meter for many new squares. Thanks high MUF short distance like JN56 (less 500 km) we possible with big signals.

Two different openings here today. Many short bursts but no long time for completing QSO.
Heard briefly 9A, OK, YU in SSB but too short bursts.
SSB activity was really to low.
I listened HG1DRD calling CQ in SSB many many times but no answer, it's a pity.
Guys please think to watch 144,300 and around. For sure you will not be disappointed as SSB QSO can easily be completed in less than 30 sec. And what a pleasure to hear your correspondent's voice rather to have a look on a screen !

Comment:
Today produced 3 new squares in another big opening. Initially, I was beaming towards I/LZ/9A but propagation also appeared to UT, so I swung the beam.
Heard on SSB, IK8EVE JN71HM, 9A2RD JN75SL,S58P JN75ID, all weak, PLUS UR5RQP KO51WB strong with a massive pile up on 144.300.
On FT8 decoded IC8TEM, IZ8YBC, IZ8IBC, IC8BNR, E77AR, E76BV, YU7ON, IV3GTH, IK7XWJ, UR5RAS, UT9UR, UT6UG, IV3NDC, EW3AA, UR4ULQ, EU3AI, YO4FYQ, UT3U.
Last decoded signal was at 16:23 UR8AS -15. He was the most persistent signal throughout the opening, at times over +20.

1 new locator today. I missed the 1st phase completly, caught most of the 2nd phase and only caught the very end of the 3rd phase. In the 3rd phase I copied UT3UX (KO50) and UT9UR (KO40) on SSB and nearly completed with UT9UR on FT8.

Whole day we had the cloud nearly above us, later on it was
to far away, then finally it moved to a more comfortable distance
but with low results. I could hear some more LYs and one R5 or
an EU-station, but all with just a one-periode-appearing.

Another good Es day. Thanks to alerts from SM0KAK and SM6VTZ in a freshly established alert system I made it to the radio just in time (we had a barbecue with guests and so I had to sign out from it for 20 min). Heard also YO2NAA, HA5OO, HA9AL, YU7KB and OM6DC in FT8. Signals were quite good and I decided to call only in SSB, It seems it was the right decision ...

Many thanks for the alerts, and all contacts!

16:06 UT3UX KO50HJ 59 59 SSB, 1809
Comment:
Again a day with many Es clouds with high MUF. The clouds popped up and developped quite quickly. Not as spectacular as the 29th, but fun again. IK0SMG called me with calls and locator only, never got report nor acknowledged, hence NC, sri.

And yes, SSB is alive!

73s and cu in the next opening,

Comment:
Another remarkable day with lot of 'electricety' in the air.
I had an excellent and rare 6m opening into W7/VE7 when the ES reached 144MHz in a total different direction.
It became an busy afternoon with propagation in different directions and on different bands ….nice :-)

Comment:
The opening consisted of two parts. from 15:00 - 15:34 UTC a meteor scatter-like opening to Italy. I heard a lot of pings and short bursts, but too short and no qso from my location. In addition, 4m had my attention because the band was open and I wkd 4X. In the second part, it opened to the Ukraine from 15:34 UTC. This was a beautiful one. Also nice to see how in FT8 multi tx mode US8AR finished the pile up in double speed.

Comment:
I heard on SSB just F5PL and EA3DBJ - lot of QSB
I heard on FT8 EA3NG, EA3TJ, EA3FWM, EA3ADW, EB1B, F6GNR, F6CIS, F4EZJ,
I have been heard by EA3BMU, EA3BR, F1BFC, F1JRD, F1RAD (high MUF 1109km)
Nice to work again on ES some stations, After last ES I have broken reading of direction from my Kenpro G-1000 good that I am able to turn and see on cam my antenna. 3 QSO during riding bike to home... :-)
Again zoo on 144.174 with SP and DL stations working tropo local contacts during ES...

Comment:
All three above on SSB. Many, too many stations from France and Spain on FT-8 and deep silence on SSB and CW. Why? SSB is much more effective during Es. Dear OMs, it's time to come back on SSB! FT-8 is great, but only in bad propagation conditions and moderate tropo.
