Only hrd : R7IV, RK6MC, RX6APY, UA6BAC, IT9GSF, F4VTP,
Short opening, Signals mostly weak, vy strong local FT8 QRM (both periods). Better to call next time with some KHz offset.

What a nice "Sonntagsfrühschoppen" !
Hello everybody.
First monitoring FT8/174 , only PA/ON copied working ES-DX...suddenly
YO/YU/LZ -stations with -16dB-reports.....building quickly.After the first
YO-report with +7dB i switched to 307 SSB CQ , 5 SSB-QSO in 4min.
Signals wide over S9....but opening was very short.Back on 174 many Italian Stations with a very short QRB were copied , Range not more than 900km...
Tnx for the nice contacts...have a beautiful Sunday!

best Hrd was RA4A 3355 kms and UA4AQL 3356 kms ! several times but no QSO ! SSB should be faster maybe ! hrd -7dB the best

a lot of station was hrd but unfortunatly FT8 is the worst mode for ES !!! too slow
but it was the only way to do some QSO today on "tablet remote" from my kitchen to prepare daugter's birthday ! so no SSB try !

regards see you next one one human mode !

Mostly on the edge of the opening, therefore only weak signals and FT8. Only SSB heard was 9A0FF but QSO not complete.
Also heard LZ, SV, 9A and later EA6 but no QSO.

Comment:
Two nice events but both characterised by very unstable conditions and often weaker signals. This meant that it was hard to complete FT8 QSOs and just a few seconds of call signs heard on SSB. I had hoped for coupling into Atlantic ducts to EA8 or even D4 but that did not happen

Comment:
I was alerted by a single decode of ER5WU and thought it was an MS ping, But shortly after I decoded ER1AN several times, so I then knew it was Es. There was strong 4M Es activity to the same area.
The cloud moved from East to West, with a slight Northerly drift. After working a few stations most of my paths ended in the Black Sea, until it had moved enough West to allow a few more to be worked.
Others decoded:-LZ2PI,YO6GLT,YO9CNU,YO8TK,YO5LD,YO5PLP,YO6DBA,IK0SMG,E77T,YO5CFI,YT3N.
Pleased with 1 new DXCC Z3, & 2 new squares, all on FT8, I did look at SSB several times but heard nothing 73 Bob

Comment:
I wasn't qrv, when I read on cluster about the opening, I listened on ssb cw qrg, but only tropo signals. I switched on FT8 qrg and received 4 PA stations for some minutes.
Very interesting was receiving 2 IT9 station that I presume I heard on back scatter from Es propagation, as I had my antenna down ( lower are 50 cm from ground ) and beaming to North.

Comment:
IV3 area was not the best place for Es today: ref zones were bit too close, or bit too distant. Resulting openings were rather short (often too short for completing a QSO in FT8). Only one QSO complete, but several stations heard.

Reflection area was too far away for me. I heard a few stations but most of them only one period. Did not receive the final RRR from I7OXH so the contact was perhaps not complete.

Comment:
I was driving back from Schiphol where I drop my wife and daughter off, traveling to EA8 country :-| I received a message from the cluster and decided to switch from DAB+ to good old FM. At 90.1MHz there was a (probably) croatian radio station which joins me to my QTH.

Finally home there were a lot of stations calling CQ ES and of course serveral strong local stations calling locally in the wrong timeslot.....GR@#$#&&*Y%$

Next ES opening ES DX at 144184.0?

Cheers and 73
