JM99 and KN23 both new squares here.

I missed most of the second opening waiting for the amp to warm up...wish I had solid state! There was very little warning, the band just opened without any notice on OIRT or Band 2 unlike the morning opening, during which the whole of Band 2 was S9++ mush and many VOR beacons were heard as the MUF reached nearly 200MHz.
