Still Atlantic tropo is open

It will be interesting to analyse the log at the end of the year and see just how often there is tropo out into the Atlantic, today it all seemed quiet and i just switched the amplifier off having called periodically during the day and then at 15:55Z up pops EA8BPX 2600km again, and 59 too. I didn't hear any other stations and it seemed to close after a short while. There was no trace of EA1VHF at the time either, it might even have been Es which was open on 6m at the time.
