Thanks.

It was really nice to get Norway again.

I didn't make any notes, but the interesting bit was, once again, the tropo tending to fizzle out as it moved inland. Sometimes this happens, sometimes the tropo sticks around. Some of the loss of DX might have been due to increased signals from inland. Oxford and Wenvoe were strong at times. Jack 2 on 107.9 was almost RDSing. I can only guess it was my semi-local Star FM which was preventing it.
