ES and Tropo logs 5th June 2016

Tropo was the main headline here, with a bit of Spanish and north African Es being the filling in the sandwich.

In the morning the path opened up to Norway – though there was no sign of the more extensive openings those further north enjoyed. This path persisted on and off till early afternoon.
Norway returned briefly mid-evening, but the path to north Germany opened up as well, and some Dutch stations (usually a struggle here due to cross-polarisation) also logged.

Managed to log Scotland for the first time ever - it's a difficult path down here with so many frequencies blocked.

I am at home on leave this week, which is a cue for the Es to take a dormant break as happened last year!
