Getting my fair share of quarantine DX from Portugal! Current MUF 94.7.
Probably scanning the band atm. And definitely moaning about the conditions.

A proper opening on March 26! Didn't expect this, at all.

Yes, it's really strange even because of yesterday's weather* but we don't have to forget that in this horrible days there are surely more possibilities that even a short and faint opening will be detected and used by the community of FmDxers.
A lot of us is at home for a collective quarantine, the days in isolation are very long and (after the fulfilment of some ordinary business) there is a lot of time to spend in monitoring Band 2 (and other bands, for those that are interested in).

* For those who are interested into possible connections between the weather and Sporadic E: yesterday, here in Mediterranean, it was cold, a little rainy and a little snowy: yes, I also have seen some snowflakes in the morning :shock:
