Tropo extended MS didn't work this time...

The news from Alex was that he didn't get a single ping from G4RRA or I when we called yesterday. I guess the tropo duct was not strong enough to carry the MS reflections all the way, there certainly were pings from me arriving at the duct entrance as some EA7 stations kept reporting them on KST chat, tnx :-)

Today the EA1VHF beacon was up and down but often 599, at 1225 I worked Avelino EA8BPX at 2600km signals were not strong (52).
