Comment:
A very spotty opening with ups and downs. Once I got a
periode with six Ukraine Hams working DLs, next periode
nothing again. Got two new SQRs anyway!
Again a very good FT8 periode behaviour - all Ukraines
and Russians together in 1st, local DL, F and HB9s (with little exceptions) on 2nd. periode - superbe!. Pity if you
miss a nice DX with calling in wrong periode, where you
maybe can't hear the DX. Best regards de Chris, HB9DFG

Comment:
I heard RU3BQ for about 20 minuts with qsb, but always over S5 the other was very weak and short opening.
Nobody on phone, during ES opening FT8 it's too slow to complete QSO FT4 maybe better, (half the time for a qso) but nobody use it.

Comment:
A few more Ukrainian stations seen on my screen but not worked in FT8. I have been calling several times in SSB on 300. UR5HVR and UT8LN came back to my SSB CQ's and the QSO was quickly made. A "UR7" answered in SSB but lost.
Nice opening that lasted around 40 minutes.

Comment:
Just left the kitchen and went to the shack for the MW contest.
Powered up and saw that the MUF was rather high above southern SP.
So the MW contest was postponed for a while, Es comes first!
Just one signal was spotted in the waterfall and it had the typical Es sound with some QSB, who could it be?
MSHV decoded and surprisingly it was LZ1KU (no one else was seen).
Worked him, switched directly to .300 and there he was now in preferable SSB with impressive 59+ sigs!
Called then for a while on .300 (no replies), back to .174 and called in 2nd period.
Catched YO7FWS, then back to .300, called in SSB for 15s and listened on .174 the next 15s, clever or not? Anyway I worked YO7FWS in SSB too, brilliant!
Then the Es faded away and the band was normal again.
Yet another amazing day on VHF!

Comment:
GE All.
This time sporadic clouds were a bit far from my QTH, that's why most of stations were not very strong and there was only one station (my ODX) ON4KHG in SSB for a short time.
In FT8 heard about 4-5 stations from France, several stations from Belgium and tried to work them, but unfortunately missed reports from the most of them. Then heard PAs and many DLs. Hope to catch another one this year.
Greetings from strong Ukraine, we will win. best 73!
