yesterday i gave ken back his Perseus and i liked to be up for the peak when i was recording the MW band so i thought i would have a extra couple of hours in bed but !! my eyes popped open at 0345z and that was me up. yesterday there was a Es opening to Belgium on 50 MHz which is really short skip here in Scotland and a few OH LA were heard as well but this opening was coming from areas that didn't have B1 TV and its good to see the Es season starting early but i hope it doesn't finish early which happened a couple of years ago as the season started in the middle of may and it was all but over at the end of June.. i recorded the Es opening yesterday which you can see on the following link and there was some strong signals coming in 50 mhz short Es
i left the kenwood on 97.0 and was recording in the hope of some good meteor pings when 2FM Ireland came up which is roughly 180 miles from here and i was beaming east so it was behind the antenna and on the following link you can hear how it sounded and what do you guys think was it meteor/aircraft/tropo scatter ???
2FM VIA ??????
my last dx logging of this season on the MW band was at 0332z yesterday morning with Radio Clube from Brazil on 1200 but as usual the music was coming in strong and when the talk started it went down in qsb and i made a recording for the realdx yahoo group for help which Paul Crankshaw (Troon) came up with the id but it was too weak to put on here or youtube. lets hope i will be busy with double hop Es on B1 TV until the MW season starts again in the autumn
