Comment:
I warm myself by the stove at home, because it's cold outside, 11 'C only, but I work 1st ES QSOs this season ;) . I saw the e-mail alarm, then try decode 1st on FT8, where is much EAs: 17:53z (EA5IK-05, EB5EEO-8, EA6ALL+01, EA6ET-13, EA5GJ-19). Then immediately switching to SSB, and work EA6AAU 59++ on 1.st call. I cannot receive another station on .300 because of the strong EA6 signal, and other freq were empty. I call CQ next 2min on SSB _NIL, and then back to FT8. Here work with EA7HLB +01 only, Prop down, and time to time decode 1x CT1EOD-07, EA5BY-15, and on the end EA5EEO+15 go strong 3 decode a 18:23 but no answer :( . After that ES 2m closed.

This is my first sporadic (Es) this year that I managed to catch. As in previous years, very weak activity on the SB part in relation to the number of stations working with FT8.
Anyway Angel thank you for this SSB QSO...
