1st opening in 2024. While monitoring 50MHz during the morning the MUF suddenly jumps above 144MHz around noon without any sign on 70MHz. I was not much privileged but could work two stns. After 20min the show was already over but good activity on 70MHz afterwards. 2nd opening was even shorter with no more QSOs made. Called CQ but nothing hrd on 144.300 as usual.

Hrd R3MW, RK3AF, RN5M, UA1AJY, UA1NAN, UB1AOC

Looking forward for more in the next days.

I noticed some of the OZ stations working into UA3 via e-s so I called CQ on FT8
at 09:13 I was heard and spotted by UA3MBJ KO87qv at 2349Km
at 09:41 I heard R3UG LO17fj at 2655Km
at 09:50 I heard and was heard by RN5M KO98kc 2438Km but did not complete the QSO.
It looks like my new array is working OK :-)

My first Es opening in '24.
I have been watching LiveMUF since this morning.
At first, Russian stations were audible, but no response. I was CQ'ing in their direction when OH7EBY called back. I could still hear stations, but no more QSOs were made at that time. MUF went up very quickly in the afternoon as I kept monitoring LIVEMuf, only going out for a very short time and HA1FV alerted me. Now I heard also many stations but only 2 QSOs.
Hrd morning: 09:46 RZ3C; 10:01 OH7EBY agn;
Hrd afternoon 14:20 RA1AEP more; 14:33 RE1ACC more; 14:34 UA1AJY more; 14:37 R1DM; 15.01 OH7MA

Tnx and 73!

First opening of this season for me. It lasted from 09:37-10:26 and again a few minutes from 10:50-10:55 UTC. I received many stations in FT8 but none in SBB (I was calling a few times on 300), despite strong signals.
Decoded callsigns, all in FT8: R2BY KO85, R2SCL KO94, R5RC LO02, RA3LBK KO64, RA3QPY KO91, RA3WJR KO81, RD3FD KO95, RM5O KO91, RM5P KO84, RN3QR LO00, RV3AQ KO85, UA3IDQ KO66, UA3PTW KO93, UA4UK LO14, UB3PAQ KO84.

There were two more openings for this day, the second lasting from 11:40-11:45 UTC and the third from 14:21-14:55 UTC. During the second there was only RU3BQ getting through. During the third I decoded also EW8W KO42, RA3LBK KO64, RK6MF KN97, RO3X KO73 and UA3PTW KO93.

This was a good start of the 2024 season. TNX for all contacts!

I was aware of the opening a little late, but made 8 QSOs in 12 minutes, all on FT8. Signals were strong, and I tried SSB and CW on 300, but no response. Saw that it was the end of the opening.

I missed the later short opening

Finally the Es reached the nothern part of Europe.
The MUF was pretty high from 8z and after 9z it just exploded.
The opening was split in two parts, both with huge signals.
Stuck on .174 as I was at QRL, hopefully SSB next time?!
5 new squares, brilliant!
