This is crazy! Strong Polish signals to the top of the band. S9+50 dB in some cases!

Thanks for the alert Andy. I wouldn't have known about this otherwise.

Good DX!

That was a good opening very strong signals up to TOB (top of band) and I had to go out at 13:30 but opening was dropping at that point so opening lasted 45 mins.

If you need any help with POL (and others) unids, just let me know.

Despite being live and logging Band I TV I totally missed this Es opening - but fortunately I've got a load of loggings from the RTL dongle/FMsuite combo. It lasted from 1144 to 1341 UTC. A quick eyeball of stations received shows mainly Lithuania, Latvia and Poland and once I've combined the RDSspy log with the frequency log I'll be able to how much of the band was active here.

August has proved to be an unusually active month for Es.
SDRPlay, AirSpyMini, RTL dongles, SB920s, Yamaha TX930. 5 ele compact yagi on rotator at 18ft agl. FM5 facing east, FM5 facing south, FM3 facing NE, OIRT dipole, 3-ele Moxon vertical facing east.
