Comment:
all day nothing, MUF too weak, and then flare up. EU is on fire.
start with dec. best DXs today at 16:22 CT2ECS+CT7BJG IM57 2320km+
but only one QSO from this area is EA7HGL. Later abt 17z dec.EA8CHC/7
and 17:07-17:13 EA7Z,EA4I, EA4DS but all on ft8, no QSO, need much calls.
In between, the 2nd area was opened to UK with 2 QSO fm JO02. 16:44z.
the shortest decoding 16:40 comes from PE1HWO,PA3BIY 1160+km and
ON4CLQ 17z 1180km, but no QSO, again much callers=short time for Qso.
first SSB sign hrd G0SYP 16:50, but QSB down. Then back to FT8 but till
17:18z complete only 1QSO, G7DCT. G4KUX NC. Others comes very strong,
GR8EEm+25dB, G4KUX +17dB, G1GEY+22dB but much callers=no QSO.
I continue time to time SSB CQ and finally 17:18 -17:28 wrkd 3xG, 1xGM.
when I switched from SSB, to FT8 still had strong sigs from UK.
Then wrkd 2xGI with sigs +10dB, and then ES starting down abt 17:40.
In 17:45z I try windom to EA/CT, decode -23dB CT7BIZ 1x only.
After that, decode 2xF IN96 from 18:12-18:23 F5GQX+01, F6GHP+14dB. ES here finish with 1decode only G7RAU, G4LOH at 18:31z
So, 2h enjoyment. TKS all. Good opening.
My 4th .ES this season (2 small missed).

Excellent opening, QSY'sd to 6m before it finished because W6/7 and VE6/7 in on 6m. All QSOs FT8 except HA4XN SSB. Also copied SV8PEX (JM99) but worked before. 3 new 2m grids: JN96, KN24 and KN26.

wide area opening with 3 reflection zones. Started with EA5 (hrd and PSKR Flags - no QSO) and immediately afterwards opening to YU.
After that spell died down, ti opened briefly to LY and EW, again no QSO.

Comment:
The Es starting at first to EA, but for me it was difficult to reach, because of the nearby mountain..
The situation is slightly better toward England.
I have only 10 QSO, but i saw a lot of bcall on my monitor.

My first ES in this year. Vy good surprise during a local contest,
Finally it wasn't during working
hours :)
Long time opening with strong stable signals.
All contacts in SSB mode. (It was very efficient compared to FT8)

Crazy event with, often, 2 directions opened simultaneously.
.174 was a mess with strong local stns calling and blocking both periods most of the time. Even QSB was severe. Unfortunately, nobody heard on SSB :-((
Using FT8 for Es can easily turn a good opening into a nightmare!

First opening from 16:44-17:32 utc, but very patchy, and stations coming through only for 1-2 min. Hrd HB9CXZ, HB9FAR, IK1ASR, I2XAV, IK2AQZ, IK2BUF (called but NC), IK2EQR, IK2JUG, IK2LHP, IK2MXY, IW2DNI, I5WHC, IZ5EME, IS0JXO (called but NC). Then a short second opening from 18:57-18:59 utc when I received IW0BSQ, IZ0UME and IC8TEM (called but NC). All stations hrd in FT8. I checked on 144,300 MHz in SSB a few times but nothing heard.

Nice to have worked at least one station over a good distance. My first ES-QSO for this season.

All QSO's are SSB except HA6OA which was CW (!). Missed some YT stations in slow CW.

Comment:
here at my site JN77pk, the 5.june is one of the most consistent days for sporadic openings for me:-)

I didn't check how high was the MUF, but it must have been very high because I saw PA3BIY-Peter (929 km) and ON5DRE (854 km) on the screen at about 17:37

I've been chasing the Locator IO72 now for 43 years (the chance was big), but I didn't see any station from IO72 ----
IO62 was a new field for that :-)

G4VZV Ken had a very strong signal on my small 3 element antenna (vertical for Es control - RX IC-7300 + 2m/70cm Transverter from UR3LMZ), so i tipped the VFO-B from my IC-7400 + 4* 8XY- HV for the SSB-QSO ... :-)

I was to close to both "Es clouds", resulting in hearing/seeing stations for a short period of time, associated with a high MUF (heard OE stations). So, the result is a very limited amount of QSO's, all the more I was hardly "hunting" CT9/OM3RG, without luck.
I heard (mostly HA) stations in SSB ;o)) and tried SSB QSO's but also without luck due to unstable and short-lasting signals here.

Stefan, CT9/OM3RG, gave me a new square and new DXCC, mni tnx! This was the first time that I heard CT3 on 2 m. Stefan has a very good take-off to the north, so hopefully more good openings for him in the future.
While looking for Stefan I heard 9A and YO coming in from the side of the beam, I had to refrain myself from turning the antenna! Glad I stayed at QTF 230 degrees :-)
I called CQ on 300 several times, but apart of a local French station, no replies.

Comment:
This opening was a tricky one with heavy QSB and lots of NC QSO's.
Feelt like it were two or more clouds, some mins, open to CT/EA, then to I.
Called several I's and EA's with no success.

CT1EOD, EA6SX, EA5UI, IS0JXO and a few more weren't completed.

CT7BJG didn't get any RR73 (even if MSHV logged our QSO), pity indeed.
Saw Mike several minutes working others (PA/DL etc.), so he was rather busy.
Finally he answered my call, I got R-16 two times.
Probably mixed propagation (as with EA8CXN), Es and Tr.

Next time!
