Es Log 5th May 2016

Interesting start to the season – on the evening of the 4th I logged a station on 50Mhz on the eastern edge of Ukraine some 2850km distant – unusual so early in the season.

Then yesterday, short opening to Algeria followed shortly afterwards by an opening to central and southern France. The Es cloud was quite close to here so I am suspecting some tilting of the cloud or something. Prop was as short as under 800km but there was little else!
