Aurora and Super 2m tropo in the VHF Juli contest to North Spain >1200km

Today during fieldday contest several EA2 signals heard some of them
EA2XR  and EA2DR/1  real strong received on the  3ele (7el 3band)  30dB on the Braun SE400
I managed to work EA2XR in IN83KI  using  9Watts only
And EA1FDI IN53TF   around midnight the EA1/2 still had tropo duct even to SM6
EA2DR/1 was also strong but the competition was heavy.
Lot of callers and slow QSO rate  but it was 20? years ago I heard EA in tropo  but never that loud
Have not been active on 2m since 1987

Remarkable good  80m spots  during / after Aurora  again as expected

I have to reset my mind and start again with a better design
