Very glad for this 1st Es QSO this year.
Around 1130 some other stations (south Italy, Malta and Grece) heard in FT8 but nobody in SSB ...
Unfortunately many stations are now working only in FT8,
It seems that many OMs forget that it would be really more pleasant to make phone QSO and are satisfied with "automatic" QSO between two machines.
See you soon in SSB on 2 meters and enjoy Es season !

Excellent Es opening spread over 6 hours.

An enjoyable 20 minute pile-up on S20 FM resulted in few completed QSO's but perhaps illustrated to some how fascinating this band can be.

Thanks for all QSO's.

Getaways - QSB: IK5RWX; IK0FTA.
All qso's FT8
Good to catch 2Mtr E@s again after a few years missing them. A bit patchy at times, I did consider SSB but a few signals were weak & would probably have been unworkable on SSB so I stayed put.

Tnx to all & stay safe. 73...Gordon.

Comment:
Unfortunately, the main direction was north-south. I was able to establish 3 QSO perpendicular to it. The EA stations were only audible for a very short time. F2CT was heard for about 5 minutes.
The direction is otherwise closed to me because of the nearby mountains.
I look forward to the next opportunity.
Thanks to the partners!

Nice opening to EA, lasted more than 1 hour with many "slots", it was very funny,
I received a lot of signal in FT8 and some in SSB, I didn't had the time to work all,
Some local QRM on FT8 more easy on SSB phone because less operator calling :))))

Updated with 2nd opening

1st opening
Nice opening to EA, lasted more than 1 hour with many "slots", it was very funny,
I received a lot of signal in FT8 and some in SSB, I didn't had the time to work all,
Some local QRM on FT8 more easy on SSB phone because less operator calling :))))

2nd opening in the afternoon
Short but with many strong signal from a different geo area of the morning: F, G, EI .
Some SSB station in pile-up, and the usual local QRM in FT8 but useful to uderstand were to beam the antenna.

PSE QSL DIRECT TO MY QRZ.COM ADDRESS

It was a pleasure to work this Es opening with so much QSB. My station is located up on the mountain and I am at home abt 50 miles from there. New country Northern Ireland worked! Since 1982 I made a QSO with a GI station but it wsn't confirmed. I was a very young boy at that time. Worked most of the opening with my infant Flavia on my knees. She seems to be very interested in those coloured traces. CU AGN IN THE NEXT OPENING! 73 de Fabio, IT9GSF.

I heard on FT8:

I have been heard by:

15:25 EA5AQB Loc IM98mk -23dB 2077km
15:22 EA5IEA Loc IM97JV +23dB and -4dB 2139km

Guys CQ DX means - cq for long distance stations, above at least 500km ! not 100-200km range on 144MHz :-)
As always lot of QRM and wasting time on FT8... nobody on SSB/CW.
