Murphy was here!! My rotor broke and i kept Az 210○dgr, El 15 dgr, pointing to Cannary Isl. !!
All contacts were made by Ionoscatter + tropo + Es…..
Terrible luck… well, thats part of the game, isnt it?

The ODX was with DL9NBD -> 2043 Kms
Thanks to everybody for these nice ES
Propagation was very unstable but we all did what could be achieved
All contacts were done in FT8
Maybe one or other contact could be done in SSB voice mode
Hopefully next time soon

Comment:
I was watching for CT3HF not seen even if Robert/DL5GAC who's only 40km away from me worked him. Suddenly he came up and stayed for at least 30min. We made QSO on 2m for a personal new terrestrial ODX and on 4m for a new DXCC.

I have seen mni others in FT8 but did not call because worked the most so often and gave the chance to others who didn't worked them before.
I was also on SSB but it was a horrible crowed with low QSO rates also nothing new.

This season is starting so what of great what can we expect ?

Good evening fellows......
Something is going wrong.....
I use FT8 as a " Propagation-Indicator"......not so bad.....
Suddenly the band is wide open.....I see station changing +15dB reports....
WHY DO YOU WASTE SO MUCH TIME??? During a 15sec period a "normal"
QSO is more than possible.........So EA8/CT (very good copy) are not in the log............EGAL
First QSO this season..........Best 73´s Peter

Day nr 10 with openings on 2 m in Europe, and it is just May! Most openings have not been in my area, but I have been flabbergasted by the amount. So, when is next?
BTW, I checked SSB a few times, and even called CQ, but no one there this time.

Comment:
Again FT8 turned out to be a good indicator to detect ES, but also slow when it gets busy with loud signals and QSB.
As everybody keeps calling, even in the same period, a few very loud signals will likely block the receiver/soundcard of the DX station.
As a result the DX station has problems to read weaker signals.
Saw this with CT1CAD who was s9 in FT8 for minutes but could only work 2 qso's with several repeatseqeunces in 5 minutes time.
Later he went to SSB where whe worked within one minute with s5 signals....

EA8ACW came as a total surprise....thanks to FT8...
