A very good tropo just on the weekend. Therefore high activity in FT8 and SSB. Especially loud were the signals from IN78 and IN88.

Comment:
Very good tropo conditions increasing in the evening
All QSO in SSB
But SP1NEN heard -19dB in FT8, QRB = 1444 km
(On purpose I am not QRV for transmitting in FT8 because I don't like this mode ...)
Many other german and UK stations also heard on FT8.
Not enough stations in SSB, a pity with such conditions.
See you soon in SSB !

First part of a fine tropo opening since

All FT8 QSO's, the propagation was not yet as good as Sunday 15th however. On the 13th already, I worked OM5CM in FT8 and CW.

Comment:
What a thriller.... A few days earlier I had asked Jose, CU3EQ, whether he would be QRV during the weekend as F5LEN's tropo page (TNX Pascal!) strongly indicated a chance of tropo between CU and F/PA/ON. On Saturday I monitored all day and evening and did not hear (nor see) a trace from him. At 23z I went to bed, to be woken by Jose on the phone 20 minutes later as he'd worked PA2M! I switched my transceiver on, but nil, Then after 30 min calling CQ CU (!), Jose popped out of the noise at -24...-21 dB and we made a QSO. 1 minute later he was gone again. On Sunday I copied him for a total of 5 minutes, the tropo seemed better across ON, southern PA and parts of DL. But after 40 years, FINALLY tropo to CU!!
One would nearly forget that there was also very good tropo into the South East as well, but my thoughts were mainly directed to the West :-)
