Aurora in the Nordic, normally not a big deal in central Europe as we are out of reach. Unless there's tropo...

Comment:WoW!!!!!! This is, I think, one of the first documented records of tropo + aurora. I spotted spots from R + OH on the cluster but did not consider it would reach this far South. I was alerted by G4CDN JO02SS who spotted LA2VHF/B JP53 at 15:08. A few minutes later I also heard LA2VHF/B which I have never heard before. This beacon was audible until 16:12. Although I have worked OH stations via Aurora before it has only been in very major events and all these OH stations and SM2A were new via Aurora for me! WoW!
