Midday at east facing hilltop: v wk ionoscatter fft trace R1
11 meters totally dead no signs of E.
Wk tropo from NL 87.7 and Bremen 93.8

Back home now and just caught wk mx on 93.0 during a mega rare fade down of the 3 radio4 txs

Also noticed ridge hill is 650hz low

I guess the unstable air is doing interesting things
