Band 2 Es 3rd Jan 2016

Post by Jim (Bournemouth) » 04 Jan 2016 11:17

After a couple of near misses in recent days, finally had an opening to Italy at lunch-time.
Noticed the European beacons on 10m building then saw activity at the bottom end of Band 2. MUF reached 100Mhz at one point and the band got decidedly soupy at the bottom end.
AS often the case with Italy, hard to log much especially at the bottom end due to the duplication of station/frequency combos.

Seems the opening was better and longer lasting further north, as I had about 20 mins here.
