Bit of allsorts today

Interesting day, not many qso's in the log however.

The day started with tropo into France very strong.

0810 I2FAK 529 539 JN45ob Tropo
0836 DJ2QV 529 529 JO31pf Tropo

Then big surprise ON made SV on Es, didn't think it would get this far and even if it did it would be drowned out by many 59+ stations CQ on tropo. Fortunately SV2JL moved to 144305, just out the worst of the QRM and the strong tropo linked the Es to me....

0952 SV2JL 59 59 KN10lo Tnx new DXCC/sq. 2427km Es ODX!

Later I2FAK got a little stronger but faded by the evening.

Later, Charlie EI5FK was portable in IO61 for a new rare square. D44TD was spotted working CN2DX but unfortunately a tropo test with Avelino EA8BPX showed no tropo in that direction from here.

Next time I hope......
